What happened to relay ops?

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by bozwoz, Aug 28, 2004.

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. Not too many years ago i used to be a relay operator, while i was still with the corps i became a telecommunications operator relay. I recently went to an exhibition for schools and wandered over to the Signals stand just for old times sake and found no mention of my former trade. What has happened to the trade as i still see the odd Relay waggon rolling along.
  2. Joined Sys Op and became Area Sys Op
  3. Not wanting to seem too thick but does that mean the whole Trunk Node is operated by one trade? (i dont mean to exclude the support personel)
  4. You're right...............less support bods, you've got yerself a Trunk/Access Node Op.

    Things are going to change further when systems like Cormorant and Falcon come on line.

    Just like the changes when we went from Bruin to Ptarmigan.
