    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.
     
  2. Foxy was in there and he is a big girls blouse......me I was Chavasse :wink:
     
  3. 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!
     
  4. 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:
     
  5. 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)
