9 Regt Hullavington

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Outstanding, May 26, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What is going wrong?
     
  2. I know the ASM very well. I'd blame him!

    On a random note......I popped down to see him there a while back.......does the unit have any white people????
     
  3. I am not getting into that, there are no problems here because of that - it just seems there is no fun anymore!
     
  4. Yeah right, not funny mate. Perhaps you work here too?
     
  5. I wouldn't work there if they paid me! I was nearly ran over twice in 15 mins by the local fijians trying to teach each other to drive!

    I'm surprised they get away with it.
     
  6. With your mind? Or something else?
     
  7. Ref the colour aspect of 9 Regt, some RLC Units are more Foreign And Commonwealth orientated than others. And im sure others could confirm that. But i have no dramas, im in a Unit where im seriously in the minority and the majority are armed with knives!

    As for 9 Regt, whats the drama? Im due to deploy to HERRICK with them, should i be worried!!! :?
     
  8. I think Outstanding has been that long in JHQ that the actual Field Army is coming as a bit of a shock to him

    Bless his old cotton socks :wink:
     
  9. If you want answers, rather than abuse, you will have to be a little bit more specific.

  10. 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 odd.
     
  11. Since when has Hullavington ever been fun??????????????? Must have missed that brief period.. :(
     
  12. 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’m intrigued.

    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.

    However I will look with an open mind.

  14. I totally enjoyed my time at 9 Regt.

    I moved there with 9 Ord Bn from Corsham, then the RLC / 9 Regt formed and a great time was had by all...!

    There were characters there at the time, great Mess / Social / Rugby / down town in chippers was a cracking night out, Rose & Crown landlord / landlady / staff looked after us all brilliantly.

    Sounds like the Regt needs a laugh !
     
  15. Thats it Daz, an injection of humour and good leadership combined.
