QRL or QRH

#1
Recently i posted a thread on here asking about the QRH's as i was interested in joining them (They are my local RAC regiment as im from Bham)

I am now also considering the QRL as they recruit from round here too but are now recce which i think may be more interesting?

Are the QRL's formerly known as 9/12 lancers which i keep hearing on these boards are shit? :eek:

What do people think or the QRL's?

Cheers 8)

Iraq, but close...

I am not RAC but have had the pleasure of working with them several times and all positive. As I said, a non RAC view but seem like a good bunch and well respected in the wider Army.

Neither, they're cavalry!! Stick with a regiment that knows what to do with tanks fella - the RTR :D

S54 just told me how he knows ya :) JW started on the course with me in oct 97, the ironic thing is he spent nigh on 17 years on panzers, got married at the end of the pilots course, posted to NI and de-gloves his finger jumping out the back of a bloody bedford! Bloody funny trying to watch him hold his change when the barman gives it to him!! :D He's single again now, working in the AH sim in Dishforth IIRC. Fingers, if you're reading this, hi mate :D

If you want tanks mate go RTR if you want Recce go QDG or LD .QRL have just re-roled to recce so they are still finding their feet.Dont be drawn into where the recruiting sgt says you have to go. QDG has a few brummies, we are in Germany so plenty of cash and we have a great year planned so now is the time to join. Has to be worth a look.

According to reliable sources (about QRL)

"ACT's and ATA's passed to such a high standard that the remainder of the Formation Recce community were forced to sit up and pay attention!"

Don't forget a lot of the older and wiser geezers in QRL are ex 16/5th, who were div recce regt in GW1, so there is still recce in QRL blood. :wink:
 
#17
Very true, 16/5th were Recce for a long time, and we were rather good at it, quite a few as spank has said are still in the QRL, and have hair and teeth. :)
 
#19
Sent you a PM spank, but i was b then d squadron

Fecking gunnery! what do you expect from an ex Tank regiment.In the recce world if you use your gun you have failed in your in your job. I was ot having a go at QRL either ,some cracking lads in it.I dont know about some of the old sweats either 16/5th hardly had a good reputation from GW 1.Things have changed in the recce world since then as well,C and S sqn to name one major difference.I am sure QRL will but a good recce regiment eventually.
