Can i just ask why vehicle mechanics are for some reason the special ones and receive massive bonuses and increases in pay. Ive worked with dozens and I'll readily admit that they work damned hard, but so do Armourers!! People are saying this recent £7000 bonus is to retain vehicle mechanics because they are always signing off at the 4 year point. What do you reckon the armourers and storemen etc are going to do when the vm's are getting all this???!!!
