Some would say it is through a drunken game of mess rugby!

You break Int Corps soldiers by making them learn GENFORCE by rote and then allowing them back into society................

My apologies, I forgot to add "Naked Bar" to the poll!

Goodness times have changed....

Once upon a time - well, c. 1996, anyway- 22 Coy was far too 'genteel' for mess rugby. The mere threat of a weekend in the field was enough to bring some Coy members out in a cold sweat. ( Recalls image of old chap wandering around the harbour area in stripey PJ's...)

Mind you, in those days there was a holder of the Iron Cross still on the books....

I think you are referring to a different 22 Coy to that meant by the originator of this thread.

I'm referring to the linguistic part-timers that used to inhabit Handel Street... surely there can't be another 22 Coy out there... ?

New numbering system being introduced. 22 Coy now a Reg unit in 2 MI Bn.

Introduced over 2 years ago.

Deepest apologies for sticking my neb in.

Well the first one didn't do it for two of my youngsters. Broke a Matelot writer though! Ended up having to do his boots up for him. 8O

It did only out of 54 on the original ORBAT only 24 turned up, Fcuking diabolical.

Was that in the days of zimmer frames and a large fish kettle being at the top of the loading list and when a certain large PSI fixed "SAGA Holidays" signs to the Coy minibuses?

Yep, that pretty much sums the old 22 Coy (V) up. :) Very pleasant people, though.

By the mid 90's the last of the old guard who had learned their Russian in the days of National Service were being gently eased out the door. GW1 and FRY moved the goalposts significantly, with less emphasis on languages 'for their own sake'.

I moved to a different TA role in '96 so I don't know what direction that company has taken in recent years. I assume that the TA linguists still fall under 3 MI Bn post TA re-balancing, though the entire Int Corps (V) Internet presence that I have found still refers to the old numbering sequence and makes no mention of 5 MI Bn.

As I recall, this may be because it doesn't exist until April.
