Hi; A good friend of mine is about to get dined out of the Army after 24 years, he managed to achieve the rank of WO1(SSM) and was bestowed the honor of being able to deploy as the Force Ordnance Warrant Officer Op HERRICK. For his dine out he is looking for a citation / history of Ordnance Warrant Officer Appointments, I have found a few snippits but nothing concrete. Can anyone point me in the right direction or provide and info e.g. where the appointment found its beginnings etc, theres obviously stuff on the prestigious appointment of Conductor but not on the good old OWO who in the day breathed fear into units when they found out the BOWO was inbound!!! The inspecorate from the gods!! I know this post will result in a whole load of flack but hopefully will also reap some rewards. P.S. I too have been an OWO (BOWO 102 Log Bde, FOWO Op TELIC) and considered myself privileged to hold the appointment and strived to offer advice and support to anyone that needed it whilst I was in post.
