Hi Guys, 25 year old car mechanic, very keen on joining REME. Don't know if this could be a sticky but here goes. Can you tell me more about A and B mech's? I understand A is more tanks and B wheel'ed vehicles? Is that the top and bottom of it? Im guessing B's are more suitable to becomming a HGV mechanic when they leave? Suppose A's could be plant mechanics for JCB? I've heard there may be a VMU trade comming in where you do both? Who is more skilled, A or B? Who has the better postings? What routinte tasks do you carry out? Clutches, services, brakes? Whats a typical day? Who does more electrcal work/diagnostic work, A or B? Is there any chance of the VE trade ever comming back? Do REME ever work plant shifts like 6 on 4 off? I know the RAF do some jumbled up shifts which I quite enjoy as I hate 9-5. Who is Greener A or B/Who does more soldiering and front line stuff? How much bullshit is there once you've passed out of basic? Inspections, parade, exercise, beastings, PT? I'd quite like to be an adult and keep on top of my own fizz as I have done all my life once I've passed out but if I have to do compulsary PT so be it. I I've been advised buy an ex RAF tech that the RAF is better because once you've passed out in the RAF it then becomes abit more of a job(apart from the kit your working on, postings and uniform)and there is hardly any bullshit but the Army it's on-going for the rest of your career? Is this true? Either way I quite fancy REME. What is trade training like? What does it entail? What does the foundation course involve? Whats promotion like for A and B mechs? Is one better than the other? Thanks in advance guys.
