  1. Recently being involved in a course featuring a number of different instructors from different Formation Recce cap badges, I'm now super interested of their role as an outsider...

    Do they all operate identically or serve different roles within the wider formation reconnaissance role (like does one or other specialise in dismounted or does another have a particular interest in more thundering around in CVRTs).

    I'd also be interested in any kind of feedback about or from these regiments... I think I understand there is a dismounted role, how hard would it be for an infanteer to learn the ropes?
  2. You missed the QDG from your list,seeing as they have just returned from Afghanistan with the booties after losing 2 lads to see that they are not on the list is a little insulting.
  3. More than a little insulting. Widely regarded as the best Recce Regiment, I cant believe you missed them out. IIRC, Comd 7 Bde refused to take 9/12L on telic 1 as they had recieved such a poor report from BATUS. QDG, who were not even in 7 Bde ended up deploying in their place. One of the Sqns was attached to 3 Cdo Bde and were 'awarded' the Cdo Dagger as an honour.

    I know because i'm Welsh (although not QDG)
  4. Count me in as utterly " Outraged" served on ops also with the Welsh Cavalry and can honestly say what a top bunch of blokes even the ones from Rhyl aswell. LOL . Can't understand the logic of your poll to leave out such a fine historic unit . No definately not from Wales but live very near .
  5. Is your query as innocent as it sounds. Are you a DInf plant trying to take control of dismounted recce?

    I sense a rabbit being set to run. Good luck!
  6. Im suprised you havent asked in the RAC Forum

    I have no idea what the purpose of the poll is, what is it for? Locked until the OP straightens it out.
