Discuss 9 Regt Hullavington in RLC on The Army Rumour Service; It just seems that any new initiative that gets suggested is dumped, and that only certain sports get any kind of genuine support. The place is OK and the troops are good too. Just feels ...
Its not the place that is dull it is the unit, we all know that op tours must come round and round (and round0 but that does not mean that we should all hang around and be dull. Just because some like to engage in sports that can only be enjoyed at an individual level doesnt mean that the rest have to become specialist in watching!!
I visiting next week and I will take a neutral look and see if Outstanding has a point. Having had a long chat with a few WOs from the regiment the pace of the place and the unique nature of the Regiment may take its toll after a while.
After my trip to very Sunny 9 Regt today I have to report a very busy regiment with happy smiley faces. The lads I spoke to were addressing historical problems and trying to balance Ops with changes in capability.
In essence no different to any regiment I have visited in the last 5 years perhaps a little ground hog day but without a proper dependency I assumed it would be. Mind you it was very sunny and I think Sqn sports and BBQ were the order of the day.
I’m not saying Outstanding does not have a point because I was only there a few hours and everyone is nice to me, don’t know why.
