    Yes the RTR do get operational tours, quite alot of them as it happens...
  12. God you piss me off. wait until you are old enough to go to an AFCO, find out there like the rest of us then come on the t'internet.
  13. If you'd been able to get to the Tank Museum last weekend you could have got your answers first hand.
  14. Well, quite. I mean, why have people who are trained to shovel shit, and shovel it oneself.
    Make maximum use of of the leather-fettlers skill-set(1)says I, keep those that have a clue 'til they're needed...
