'cos the PBI need the pack mules to keep us supplied, the saw doctors to patch us up again and the various other elements needed to keep the infantryman/tankie doing their job. Why do you think we are ALL called soldiers?

edit to add - This for the ******** methinks.

Im sure the infantry and "the tanks" will be pleased to have your somewhat random support.

Then again you probably dont understand a lot of things mate. :thumright:

I agree. We don't need air support, artillery support, paperwork, pay ect from the AGC, Engineer support, REME to fix our weapons and vehicles, intelligence gathering, cooks, logistic support in all shapes and sizes, RMP's to keep order, ect ect ect.........

The infantry can do it on their own. Just ask Hitler and Napoleon when they invaded Russia!

Only 4 posts, damn with wit like this chap you'd have thought he'd been around Arrse for ages (rather than just being an Arrse).

I have a great feeling this boy is not even in any Army regiment. Either that, or he is on some big wind up.

We all know inf are the pointy end of the sword etc..

Perhaps he means, do some men out there who aren't in the infantry feel like they're somehow second class soldiers?

Rubbish of course, but the poor wee boy might have meant that in a 'I'm hard, all yous others are pussies' kind of way. He does afterall sound like he's 12.

Albeit with size 10 feet. I suspect he's a 39yo ASDA trolleymong with a mental age of 12.

Because cold, wet, exhausted and frightened are part of the skill set?
