    I had occasion to have a class full of clerks for weapons training. I spoke in private with my counterpart, a clerk WO and told her we were there to familiarize in my impression as we couldn't teach GPMG in 2x 40 min classes... So that's what we did.

    Not much for sure. Controlled environment can do that for sure.

    Yes Jim. I remember everyone trying to skive off the mil training periods, using all sorts of rubbish excuses....., the sick, lame and lazy, the clerks and the cooks with more important jobs to be done etc etc. But we'd all been trained initially so after the first half hour of running around and a bit of drill to loosen up he rest of the morning (or afternoon) was pretty relaxed...., just to sharpen us all up a bit. Last half hour weapon cleaning, tidying up the area or classroom, hand weapons and stores in, debrief and that was it. It took more effort to skive off than do the training. Strangely, the RAEME recovery mechanics (the reccy-mecks) were always good at the military training because they were always at the sharp end of the trouble. Happy times

    I told them if they were on a GPMG then it was because the dozers had already covered our trenches and they were defending themselves. Drills were more of a familiarization and how things "Feel"... Then sign the papers they brought and send them back to work.
