1 Lancs. Give it to me hard.

#1
I'm posted to 1 Lancs nee QLR's, I've heard some less that encouraging rumours about them so I wanna know if anyone has been attached to them and what it's like.

Bugger me! That bad eh? Suppose if the regiment leaves us alone it won't be too bad. As long as the lad is full of good blokes.

Not had any experience of them for a long time, but were always known by two nicknames "Quick lads run" & the ultimate insult "Queens Last Resort".

I did a couple of battlegroups with them in the 80's, they were at best mediocre. I would like to think that things have changed since then, but I am unable to say if that is true. They are probably typical of a lot of Infantry Bn's who don't want to know the attached arms until a) There are duties to be done, or b) their kit is knackered.

They are that bad ....individuals are fine with some really good blokes but as a whole NO! They dont like looking after kit until its needed and as usual the reme has to do everything for them at the last minute.Useless .............

Had the misfortune of Med Man 1 last year as part of their Battle Group, I have never endured such an absolute fustercluck. Set off to a tactical replen, they couldn't even direct traffic, result was over 70 armd vehs driving in a circle, we only got re fuelled when it got light, not v tactical, I pity you working with that shower.

seem to remember on that med man they were stopped from carrying live ammo ,they were that dangerous any body clarify this, oh yes and they tried to handover a 432 ambulance to me that had a complete rear idler missing a charging fault and no oil pressure and they wondered why i told them to naff off.

Worked with them in BATUS in 2000 seem to remember them having about three teeth to share around the BN and more blackeyes than a panda convention, good luck.
 
#17
Hope I have nothing to do with them again. Had a big fall out with the RQMS at the time and now he is the RSM.
 
#18
No he isn't dinger, new one in as of just now!!
The unit is still utter carp and I would in reality rather remove my legs with a band saw than endure anathor tour with this bunch of disorganised, ill disciplined, uneducated,uncooth,humorless,unprofessional rabble!!
May the next round of options for change remove them from the order of march!!
 
#19
Its all doom and gloom here about the unit but it ain't all bad I mean at least you'll be busy and all the more sociable lad members have stayed in germany so you'll have the camp to yourself on the weekends

OK i stand corrected. I did find most of the lads OK though. Problems must be from the top down.
