16 Close Support Medical Regt

#1
Looking at postings and was just wondering what 16 CS MED REGT has to offer?

Supposed to be a fairly keen Regt and plenty of PT with all trades there including Nurses, ODPs, CMTs amongst others.

What do you make of it? Good and bad comments please.

Worked with them a few times, good unit, plenty of tours :wink: , LOTS of PT and if you want the BBC, then its the unit for you :twisted:
What do you mean the BBC? Do they get on the box much? I am informed that they have a new barracks with all the mod con's.

Is Colchester any good on a night out?

I thought there would have been more replies. I know a good hand full of people who have been there but trying to get a broader picture.

There are a lot of girls there, all wearing the coveted pink beret, but none of them seem to be able to find a lipstick that matches!

I wont hear a word said against them, especially Med Troop, they are special, very 'special' people in Med Troop! How they are envied... especially the ODPs; special very very special.

One day, one day maybe we can be special too?

If all goes to plan i'll be working with them next year. heard there is a bit of an "us and them" thing going on down there. Personally, i can't wait hear the abuse i get when wearing a maroon beret with crab badge. Can't see that going down well!

probably wont be as bad as you think, remember that there are girls with QA capbages in their cherry berets, will a bloke with a RAF badge cause much of a stir? Especially when you think of the number of Navy and RAF who deployed on the same Herrick as them last year.

The 'them' part usually comes from those that don't have the stones or the maturity to have a go in the first place. That and pig ignorance.

I was there when it was 23 PFA and although I didnt want to be posted there I really enjoyed my time there, was glad to leave and get back to the real world though, those that stay too long tend to lose a bit of grip on reality.

How true Filbert... Some even think they are actually SF and go on about wearing black; when then truth is, that is further from the truth and time for that individual to move on... 'Walter'.

You will hear a lot of b**locks talked about 16 CS, take it as you find it. It's a brilliant unit which has its share of good and bad, top personnel and total throbbers in the same mix as most units. Med Troop is also a top place to work....I would say that wouldn't I. The them and us part really refers to a misinformed minority, as said, go there work hard, play hard and make your own mind up.
I 2nd this (apart from the Med Tp thing :lol: ) just make sure your fit and take your sense of humour with ya

Im at 16. Not a bad unit, and it can only get better. Like has been said, some very good people and some not so good, but you will find that anywhere. I enjoy it
