381 Med Supply Sqn was formerly a part of 2nd Medical Brigade. However, with effect from 1 Apr 06 it has been dissolved pending a re-establishment of the Sqn under the care of (I believe) 9 Supply Regt RLC.
I am vaguely aware that CVHQ RLC are in the process of working out how to effectively re-engineer the sqn before 1 Apr 07.
Its a very easy place to find, and being in the MSS will mean you wouldnt be in Hullavington much, with exercises and deployments you will probably be in camp 6 months in a 3 year tour, which in my experience was a blessing!!
Years ago, 98 I think, before they moved from Aldershot. I have to do the course again at Fort Blockhouse but its only a short one.
Yes I got that impression of RAMC not being held in high regard, by the OC at least.
Given a choice I would like something else, like the field Hospital at Fort Blockhouse or a unit in Aldershot, Tidworth or Bulford (even Cdo Logs Med Sqdn), but the AMS being what it is it seems I dont have much choice, its either this drop to Cpl and work in the MRS in Bovington (with cavalry types!) or go to RTMC on an HC post, not much of a choice really.
I want FC since I want to deploy so this appears to be my one and only choice.
Good job the rest of the army is a bit more accommodating, Inf, RLC, Int infact pretty much everyone bends over backwards to get their guys a job if they want one. AMS is somewhat different.
