The Corps in 5 years time

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by Fatbadge, Jan 30, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How do you see us?

    Equipment getting better, Training improving constantly (?!), Standard of recruit..well...whatever.., Management now vibrant and constantly pushing onwards and upwards.. JNCO's now allowed to join the Institute of Royal Engineers, it should all be pointing us towards being a more effective organisation.

    But as a Corps, where do you see us in the future? What do you see as our downfalls, what do you see as our progressions?
  2. oiling the shovels in the G10

    in fact oiling/painting EVERYTHING in the G10 (weekly)

    getting f*cked around on ops/exercise because no one ever knows quite how to use the corps.

    eating ginsters.

    lagging the bed.

    er .... did i mention oiling shovels

    trying to be the horrible-ist troop/squadron in the corps


    trying to find a spare patch of DPM to sew the latest bone patch on.

    trialling the new "sleep tite" swamp proof mattress.

    then back down the G10 for another bout of oiling.
  3. Never a truer word spoken.

    So you reckon much of the same then, with just a change of date and still living out of the back of a 432?

    Certainly living out of a 432 - they will be around for a long time.

    All the new FAS squadrons manned? - maybe

    New engineer tank that is faster that CR2 - pretty much a done deal

    Corps still regarded by the combat arms as being on a par with the support arms - until they deploy somewhere and they realise just HOW much we do.

    Short Fuse will have stopped eating Ginsters as PAYD will be in, but hopefully he will have sorted out his bladder problem
  5. stop eating ginsters ........NEVER , ....DAMN YOUR EYES SIR.

    Ok - you can keep the Ginsters - but perhaps sort out your swamping problem!

    Oh and maybe we'll let you off oiling the G10 - you should be a senior by then!
  7. Aye... a fat G4 wallah.... :lol: :lol:

    SSGT (SQMS) Shortfuse.

    It does have a ring to it.... :wink:
