Hi guys, I'm a member of the RAOC on-line branch of the RLC, having served in the RAOC between 1967 - 76. On our forum the above question was asked. I've included the whole current thread, and will pass on any info that you guys supply. By the way, those who joined up originally in the RAOC would be very welcome to join our RAOC on-line site. Most of us have a shock in "How it was, to how it is now!"

But there could also have been a re-tread somewhere that takes the title? 21/08/11 at 11:34 AM #3 ________________________________________ What about the intake prior to the above who would have passed out as RAOC, any one in that group on the forum. Would the museum have the names and photo's of the last RAOC soldiers to pass out as RAOC ??....................... mickg __________________ HQ 4 Div BATUS 1st time Camp du Larzac S/S 36 Hy Air Defence Regt RA 24 Air Portable OFP ICP Viersen BATUS 2nd time S/S 94 Loc Regt RA CMTT Uganda 13 Ord Coy 78 Belize Ord Coy S/S 22 Engr Regt RE Falklands 42 Ord Coy The good old days - Gone but not forgotten 21/08/11 at 11:37 AM #4 ________________________________________ Given the museum, I wouldn't think they would have a darn clue. 21/08/11 at 12:03 PM #5 ________________________________________ Sadly HQ RAOC and the RAOC Museum relied on VanDyke Studios in Farnbough to store negatives of passing out photos etc, and when they closed in the early 2000's all were dumped as rubbish. I believe the School of Logistics (School of Ord) still have a load of group photos, but this and the juniors site have a better collection of passing out photos than the museum has. However this can be said of many other museum including the ACC & RCT who also used VanDyke's!
