The recovery mechanic or Rech Mech is the most respected trade in the army and expert drivers and navigation to boot as well as the best pie eaters and drinkers..

Recovery Mechanics keep the army moving in all weathers. Many a squaddie has cheered up when the Foden comes into view, despite their 24 hour wait then fleeced of a crate of beer for breaking down and getting stuck.

The glamour of being a rech mech is when one turns up to find a young female soldier standing at the side of the road. Thus doth the knight in shiny armour rescue her and so receive her plighted troth or other form of 'after the watershed' appreciation... And if you believe this, then you'll believe anything!
