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????

Yeah right, not funny mate. Perhaps you work here too?
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.

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!!! :?

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:

What is going wrong?
If you want answers, rather than abuse, you will have to be a little bit more specific.

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.

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.

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 !

Have those two lads returned yet?

One was a dopehead and the other was his mate.

Which Sqn?
Had no idea there were so many pairs of AWOL soldiers frollicing all around the UK.

They were on the news a while back. :D Seems to have gone quiet though.

Might be better not to continue that line of investigation mind.

Is the accomodation still WW2 vintage 20 man rooms divided by wooden partitions that don't make it all the way to the roof?

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.

Bit like the Queen mate - always smells of new carpets and paint, I guess there was no mention of triathlon?
