Keogh and Troop Names


Book Reviewer
Back in the happy days of regimental and corps depots Keogh used to have a rolling programme of troops in basic training named after the VC winners of the AMS.

Does this tradition continue in any form?

MiB, who thinks anyone from Martin Leake is a big girl's blouse.
It did ten years ago at Lichfield. I can only assume that Winchester has followed suit (?) I know at 2 Armd Fd Amb they used to have VC winners' names on the side of the decrepit 432s. I was surprised we managed to collectively remember 15 names!
I think they still do. Chavasse kicks ARRSE and ML are all girls. The names on the 432s were left by their original RMOs, not that I'm saying they were antiquated or anything! :lol:
Careful mentioning this the PC Brigade might deem it unfair to have the names of people who did, and represented, heroic selfless deeds for others. it might be thought unfair to the average run of the mill human or demeaning to lowlife chavs and scroungers, I mean........( Bulldog goes in search of soapbox to stand on)


Harden and Martin-leake were a bunch of ponces and Thompson contained the old boy psychos!

Chavasse was the house to be in!

Rab B, thinking up evil sadistic things to inflict on us young men.

Oh how i laugh when i care to remember.

Ah the memories, how I loved the delights of being introduced to the brasso / dustbin pastime.

Come on Gibo a day wothout you on a soap box never, you are more likely to disillusioned members of the military waiting to leave!
The screaming skull is now the superviser for an old soldiers home in Dundee. Does anyone ese find that a frightening thought?
The majority of residents in an old soldiers home in Dundee are probably very frightened by that thought :-(
I hear that there are lots of vacancies at said old persons home. Even for these Victorian values Gentlemen the skull is to much.

I also hear Akcy M, & Rab B are on the care staff!!!!
The screaming skull? what a grade 'A' arse, I had the misfortune to not only go through training under that muppet but also have him as a Razz man for 3 years with 4 AFA.

The guy was a fruitbat plain and simple good at shouting but f**k all else.
Tried his hardest to ruin many a good blokes career just ask some of the recruit full screws around that time.

Probably spends all day quaffing large amounts of Buckfast and shouting at people whose names he can't remember.
