Well `The Laurel & Hardy 2009` arrived at the ex Mrs` House at the weekend â we still get on Whiskeybreath but I must change the address for correspondence from ICA. Anyway today was a `day orf` from the `office job` and sat with a brew and bacon sarnie digesting the tome. Obviously went straight to the Obituary section to check on whether anybody had pegged it that I knew and who owed me money ! Then flicked through the numerous photographs to see if I recognised anyone (not many) and then noticed the Corps Adjutants page â paragraph 4 page 7. I would have thought that naming the two INT CORPS platoons that make up the combined D Coy at Pirbright with names `associated` with the Corps was meant to motivate these direct entry soldiers â why then have them named after Senior Officers who `served the wider interests of our Corps and our soldiers with an enthusiasm and commitment that deserves to be enshrined` ! What a load of bollox ! Other than the `sporting` trophies and a building (now allegedly a pile of rubble at Ashford) named after a now long dead WO surely the naming of the platoons could have been better thought out in order to foster a bit more motivation amongst direct entrant soldiers ? Not withstanding the list of fallen since page 55 just looking through the Obits of this year there are names listed who deserve better recognition. What about those who are now longer with us but achieved gallantry awards or achieved things after their service and were actually badged INT CORPS at the time ? As an example I am sure that the name `Mairs, Hashmi, Buchan or even Herzog Platoon would be a better motivating factor than some senior Rupert who with respect has nothing in reality in common than attendance at social functions and handing out the odd lanyard or silver cup ! Rant over ! PS â I see that the Director still has that jovial smile ! PS â I hope none of my ICA subs were used for that portrait on the front cover ! PPPS - Subsonic, RWAC, CR (or any other Arrse names) Platoon were apparently considered but were rejected on the grounds of that they actually passed an A3 !
