Sounds like some Personnel Selection Officer's logic and a propensity for slotting round pegs in square holes. Probably took one shufti at that greasy cap and fingernails and thought he'd slip him in an ACC vacancy.

Demolition slots, sapper trades, were likely to be filled by lads from Cordon Bleu chef school..
