RLC BLADE WINNERS

#1
Has anybody in the Corps been a RMAS blade winner . As we have a bloke at work who said he was. He commissioned in, I think, 98. But I think he maybe telling porkies. His first name would surffice in confirming it was him.

e-mail the RMAS archivist requesting names of award winners for any selected year or range of years:

dr.morton@rmas.mod.uk

Dr Morton used to be the RLC Museum Archivist.

No one has commissioned into the RLC has won the Sword of Honour (at least unless the Corps existed prior to Apr 90 - which it didn't!). Give me a pm with intials and I'll let you know if even that is right.

I know a guy in the RLC TA who got the sword at his TA commision course. Does that count?

Ok just to cover my back before I out this "walter" has anybody in the RLC won the Queens Medal?

This is what he wrote on our internal page at work.

" XXXX spent one year (1996-1997) living and working in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) , employed as a site based Project Manager on civil engineering, geophysical and communications construction contracts varying in value from US$ 2-25million.

Upon his return to the UK, XXXXX attended the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, army officer commissioning course, attaining the award of best officer, and was Commissioned into the Royal Logistic Corps of the British Army, serving for four years."

PantsOff,

just check that he doesn't mean winning the Carmen Sword

Carmen Sword Winner - scroll down to see the list

His name would be on there if he was awarded with the sword.

I was at the factory at the time and I was one of a very few (possibly the only) Loggie JUO during '98. As Barbs said - we haven't had a SUO yet. But then, I reckon Barbs has probably had a hand in that somewhere along the line... :wink:
 
#13
nope not on there.

This is the email reply from RMAS ref Mike_2817 post.


"Thank you for your e-mail. I can confirm that since its creation in 1993 no officer cadet commissioned into The Royal Logistic Corps has has been awarded the Sword of Honour or Queen's Medal. I hope this has been of some help."

I am sorry to say that you Loggies had a complete cnut in your Corps who needs make himself "cool".

I will oust him.

AB not being from your Corps does link illustrate who was the best 2Lt on each Troop Commanders Course?

No, not necessarily. It can be awarded to any RLC officer who has been identified as being of considerable merit to the Corps. Usually starts life as a citation, like most other awards.

There was an RAOC Sword of Honour winner. He was on my Passing Out Parade.

Since retired - good bloke as well.
 
#18
Nope this chap is defo RLC as he commissioned in 98/99.
 
#19
I can confirm that the most recent antecedent RLC punter was in '85 (as said before - RAOC). I'll go and check QM (because I'm thick, I didn't).

Is it me or does anyone think my bolds a bit odd seems a lot of responsibility for a first job out off uni and quite a bit of variation in a number of what looks like large projects certainly no way he could have been involved in a number of projects with costs like that in a year
