"Nil sine labore", is totally new to me !!In which case, both the RCT and RASC had two mottos...
Or three between them!
Nil Sine Labore was the RCT Corps motto from 1965 on, prior to that it was In Arduis Fidelis for the RASC."Nil sine labore", is totally new to me !!
As a very new 2Lt (fifty years ago . . . ), I was told by my Adjutant, that the Corps motto was,
"honi soi qui mal y pense", ("Evil be to him, who evil thinks") . . .

"Honi soit qui mal y pense (UK: /ˌɒni ˌswɑː kiː ˌmæl iː ˈpɒ̃s/, US: /- ˌmɑːl -/, French: [ɔni swa ki mal i pɑ̃s]) is a Middle French maxim, meaning "shamed be whoever thinks bad of it", usually translated as "shame on anyone who thinks evil of it" and used as the motto of the British chivalric Order of the Garter.

However, I note that the same (Garter) crest and motto, is/was also used within the cap-badge, of three of the RLC forming corps . . . (as well as just about everywhere else, according to the inter-web !).

The accusation was that senior OXBRIDGE CS quip and converse in Latin to put lesser educated staff down. Apart from the appropriate use of legal terms and accepted grammatical use (which is falling out of favour)*, I've never heard Latin used conversationally.Per diem? Per annum? Et cetera? Inter alia?
