The Hemming Belt for Boxing

#1
I could have posted this topic in the Sports Adventure Trg & Events, however with this being an RLC sports associated topic I thought that I would have more luck here.

I always thought that the Hemming Belt for Boxing had been shelved in 1992 just prior to the formation of the RLC? :?

The reason why I ask is that I have just heard that it has recently been presented to a Pte in 13 AA Regt.

Can someone out there enlighten me, has it recently been plucked out of a dark cupboard & dusted off for presentation once again or am I losing my marbles?

Cheers

I received the hemming belt today at the core RLC day it was a special award given to me at the end of all the awards, very proud of it, one of my fellow team members had it before me.

The Hemmingway belt was re-introduced due to the fact it was "found in a cupboard" by a keen eyed G4 guru!

Hopefully it will be looked after properly in the future, as always, many of our expensive and old trophy end up lost in an RHQ display cabinet! The best way to find out who has won the belt since 92 is asking s.khan to print the names on here as the display box has all the winners etched on it (apart from the gapped years obviously).

Hi my father is Stephen Johnson and he is the man to only have won this belt 5 times . I would like to know if this belt is some where that you can go look at . I think I would like to see if I can get my father and this belt together one day

Hi janjohnson, the belt wasn't issued out this year in the sports awards i dont think but it was in 10 QOGLR in the rhq building up until this year June I think it goes back to the rlc museum I'm not too sure. Hope you find it.

The belt was awarded to a 13 AASR boxer this year, although yes the belt is now back in Deepcut. Not sure if in the museum or Dettingen House but the museum will put you on the right path.
