Its Petroleum Operator, so please dont say Petrol Op to a PetOp, but thats me being pedantic!
One thing i will say ref your sitiuation, if the reason for you not being able to stay in Inf is lifting related etc (ie not being able to lift stuff etc) then dont bother with PetOp. Its a physical job but if your medical reason is being a sexual sadistic murderer (we've had them all!) then by all means Pet Ops for you!!!

I do not know your rank, but you will be pushed to get into Pet Op or Port Op at present as we have few if any vacancies in either of these trades. If you are sold on RLC, look at the larger trades and you will probably have a greater chance of success; Log Spec (Sup), Driver, Log Comms Spec, Tank Transporter Driver.

If you can lift a Meat and Potato pie, you're ok for Ammo Tech!
.....and if you can eat the whole pie, and still find room for a Yorkie bar, a life on the road moving armour (and thunderboxes) awaits :lol:

Tank mover. Piece of cake.

No, not together. I mean one is the other. Oh feck it.

Don't you just love those jugs above this post? I wonder what size they were when they started?

Read it... Understood it... Responded to it...

Do I spot a sense of humour failure, Bell-end?
Not at all dick face. Hence the tongue in cheek response.
You appear to have taken offence at the soubriquet. Isn't the bit dangling at the end of a bell called a dinger?

You really are thick. Is that why your Service was no longer required? Or did you do something else to get sacked?

Go and look up what soubriquet actually means.

Go and look up what a CLAPPER is.

Next time you want to insult someone. Don't bother.

You really are thick. No, I'm not; at the risk of descending to your playground level, I'd compare IQs with you at any time. Is that why your Service was no longer required? You are not the first to have been misled by my wry pseudonym and thereby reach an erroneous conclusion; I left the army, after some years of regular service, of my own volition. Or did you do something else to get sacked? Oh, was I sacked? Had I wanted to continue serving, I could have done so - indeed, that was suggested to me on more than one occasion, by more than one officer, during my final days - but I wanted to go to university. I remain grateful to the MOD for its assistance in ensuring that I was accepted for my chosen course.

Go and look up what soubriquet actually means. No, you look: "a name given to someone or something which is not their real or official name" - http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=75375 refers.

Go and look up what a CLAPPER is. I already knew; I was being whimsical. Your capitalisation, as is so often the case when it used by the barely literate, is both unnecessary and grammatically incorrect.

Next time you want to insult someone. Are you going to finish the sentence? Don't bother. Why not? Oh, I understand - because the subject might be over-sensitive. If I weren't such a 'new man,' I'd be tempted to guess that you're female and suffering pre-menstrually.

Gosh, I wonder what wrath I'd have provoked, had I commented on your spelling of 'idiot' and misuse of a conjunction when responding initially.

Have a nice day - if you can.
