    Just in case it's not a wah.

    Proudly ripping out your teeth since 1921, Special Army Order 4, signed by Winston Churchill himself.

    Became Royal in 1946.

    Though dentists did deploy in Boer and WW1.

    Regimental Motto, Ex Dentibus Ensis. From the teeth a sword, a reference to the greek myth, where dragon's teeth were planted and would grow into fully armed warriors. Hence the Dragon with sword cap badge.

    There's even been medals won by RADC personnel! Fecking warry lot.
     
  11. As in "one crown, two fillings and a polish?......"

    Sarong, Tuk-tuk.....
     
  12. Usually parade at about .................. 2:30 ................... start the car quick ;-)
     
  13. Not a wah. Genuinely clueless. Had always assumed Army dentists were RAMC.

    Cheers for info.
     
  14. My Dad did his National Service in the RADC after completing his Dental Technicians apprenticeship.
     
  15. Just because the new DG is RADC, it doesn't mean he has presidential powers of veto, it doesn't work like that.
