What is your view on the corp you joined?

#1
We all know that the RE continually boust about being the best and the father of all corps in the army today. In this thread you can have your say about your corp and why you enjoy working in it. I will not take sides with the RE, solely because i'm part of that corp. My reason for this is because in the not so distant future the trade i'm in will be part of the Intellagence corp so feal free to boust as much as you like. No slagging off any corp, even if you think it is s**t. 8)

Definition: boust: A tcl/tk text-reader that formats the file in boustrophedon This is a tcl/tk text-reader that formats the file in boustrophedon (a reading- / writing- style that alternates direction every line). Unlike conventional left-to-right styles of reading/writing, boustrophedon does not require the eye (or the hand) to whip back to the margin whenever the end of a line is reached. In boustrophedon, the horizontal position does not change; one simply goes down to the next line and continues.

Confused the feck out of me young fellow me lad. :roll:

okay to reduce confussion from the first post. The RE has a big head and an ego to match. So give your corp a big head and an even bigger ego than the RE. Make sense?? :?:

Double whoops if you can correlate 'confussion' with 'china syndrome'. ;)


Its a bit of a play on words, mind......

Nice play with words you two, but can we try and stay on topic if we can. I would really like to read what you think of your corps.

Sorry mate.


My Corps initials stand for Anti Admin Corps. Sooo true.

Like it all the same though as it tends to be grown up(ish) and on the whole, good fun. Always a bonus when you enjoy your job.

All I can say is, how do you expect to have an intelligent, civilised discussion when 1) You aren't intelligent and 2) Slagging off and stereotyping the Royal Engineers and or it's personel certainly is not civilised.

Moving on, the Army needs each of its different Corps/ Regiments/ Sectors to operate smoothly, as one, and so boasting or something to those lines is fine as everyone is a piece in the puzzle.. however the point is that everyone is needed, apart from those that require a certain IQ. that certainly isn't worth boasting over ;)

With spelling skills like these you so superbly display you should fit in nicely in the "intellagence" corps.

We dont have to boast :?

99.9% of the time it is fact that we talk of. (the 0.1% being about White and Blue lanyards...)

Clearly youre not a Sapper in the truest sense of the word. Youre due to depart? Brilliant. Leave your Capbadge, TRF and Stable belt at the Guardroom when you leave. Cnut.

By the way, it's 'The Corps' after all, we are 'The Corps of Royal Engineers'

We are extremely proud of what we are and what we do, not Boastful. There is a huge difference. You'll find this Esprit De Corps exists all over the British Army. The Guards, The Rifles, Paras (Especially The Parachute Regiments themselves) as well as some of the newer Corps like the RLC all have high Esprit De Corps if you look closely enough. None of us 'Boast', we just extoll the virtues of being in our chosen profession. We're rightfully proud of what we do, regardless of what badge we wear.

Her Majestys Corps of Royal Marines..
I have no need to boast
everyone knows we are the best at everything,

including naked roll mat fighting. The only thing we are not best at is becoming women... we leave that to the Paras!

Joining a corp is one thing, joining a Corps is quite another. Fortunately the only time I did the former was with a young lady LCPL who is now Mrs Devexwarrior and mother to the Devexwarriorettes. As for Corps I am now on my second-which is fitting as the wife says the Army is my mistress and mistresses should be changed now and again (like underpants) but not too often (again like underpants).
