The Hemming Belt for Boxing

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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
