London Reg

#1
Anyone know if the London Reg is playing for the next telic? Or a telic this year? I have heard a yes, no, maybe, shrug of the shoulders....

I think they're hoping to have 'London' added to their colours as a battle honour, but I don't think major infighting on this website counts as a battle?

:lol: Sadly true, Polar

Two TELICs in the last year, not entirely sure we could mount another in the near future.

FINGAL?

We are in the bag for T7 but have also been mooted for Kiplings back yard.

I heard more grumbling last night about Afghanistan. To be honest the actual location is any ones guess but I think you can be certain that we will get pinged for somewhere by the end of 05 early 06. Stand by.

Outsider looking in - your CO must be f@cking mental to keep volunteering your unit for Telics. One, for credibility's sake, fine. But more??

Does this strike any chords in ARRSE land?....... Hard core attenders away on Telic for 9 months (incl POTL)....sparse attendance while they're away.....training suffers and becomes dull as little scope with the OC,CSM and 7 blokes......recruits see all this, vote with their feet or just not join......post Telic, people leave due to 'The Mrs' and/or having stagged on at Allsopp Lines for six months........takes ages to recover....thank God someone else has been spammed for Telic 'x'.......

Am I speaking Chinese??

No, I left the last unit because of this. It was as you describe. I think it's not turned out as bad as I thought it would - ie TA something that can only be used once - but it's certainly thinned things out a bit because they all got attached to a fairly mental regular unit, got thrashed/injured (well that's life I guess) but most gallingly spent their time polishing their helmets about 80 miles from home to little apparent end.

LONDONS have done two TELICs in the last year.....

Erm, yes, that what we thought too, but no, it was quality time in the good old English countryside for an extended spell of cleaning the stores etc etc and basically doing little of any value. Everyone loved living up the road on less money and not being allowed home.

Have it direct from the highest authority that the Army called for a platoon for Telic 6 but Charile Oscar pushed them back saying come again at least 6 months on. We could offer up the PSAO's of course!

Hello My Children
Although I may be a crow here as one septic once said to me "this is not my first rodeo, cowboy".
So much to say, so little time.
The regiment has had a rough time of it lately. Many of us have been on trips abroad and it has impacted on the regiment as a whole. If the truth is told, good blokes will always be good blokes despite capbadge. The proof of that is the performance of one particular exceptional group of warriors in the sandy place last year. No names no pack drill, but the number 4 features heavily. So it can be done, it just takes the will to win. (As we did every time!). The future is not in our hands, but as long as we go on in the tradition of the Fighting Fourth we cannot go wrong.
As for the fifth columist who has plastered himself all over the left wing press, he will be mine! Either in this world or the one where I spend the other 50% of my time.
