  3. Where did you hear that?
  4. A Regiment tasked with special operations perchance ?

    However in RMP..................................?
  5. Never heard of it.

    However, they are, because their ability is recognized before they leave depot - bit like a modern day Chosen Man. Given their intelligence no wonder that they should be considered as such of course.
  6. Wait, what?


  7. Absinthe, if you're serving read the A2020 brief with reference to the RMP. Explains it. It is nothing to do with UKSF, for any potential big-timers.
  8. Thank you Timble.
  9. It's the crack team of redcaps who contribute to the safety and security of Afghanistan by charging combat troops with speeding inside Bastion.

    Please keep that to yourself........

  11. There are no special operations Regiments, however there are a number of Regiments and specialities that provide the skillsets for special projects. These are usually National Contingency Operations that not only involve members of the 3 Services but other UK assets.

    These commitments do have operational names, depending on the particular contingency, however the operational names themselves are classified.

    Perhaps you prefer the opportunity to explain to somebody's mother or wife how they were killed by some idiot driving like a lunatic. Monkeys hate traffic duty on ops it wasted their time, it's unpleasant, and it brings them into conflict with idiots.

  14. Eloquently put BA; much more so than I would have been able (why I ignored it). And Augustus - we don't charge people with crimes/offences against Standing Orders - I think you'll find that it's your own CO that does that. But please, don't let facts get in the way of a good (if old & tiresome) story.
