I have just taken over as TM at the same regiment I joined as a TA soldier way back in the early 80's. I have to say it's great to be back in my own neck of the woods. Although a 'culture shock' initially I am slowly getting my head around phrases such as MTD's, C1 Training and the dreaded budget cuts. I have to thank the guys and girls in the regiment for doing what they do and to all who have helped me settle in. We're just back from a great weekend in Swynerton (what a place) and the feedback I have heard and hard graft I witnessed is very positive. So, to those who turn up regularly, cheers for your motivation and willingness to learn. To those who have not showed for a time (for whatever reason), why not give it a try again and see how you feel.
