29 Regiment Personnel receive Long Service & Good Conduct Medals

Last month on the 27 Oct 15 in front of proud family and colleagues, Commander 104 Log Brigade, Brigadier S Hutchings OBE (Late RLC), visited Catterick Barracks in Bielefeld to present Long Service and Good Conduct medals to Sgts Toni Hill, Steven Reeves and Kevin Burn of 29 Regiment RLC.

The LSGC dates back to 1930 and is awarded to a soldier upon completion of 15 years service. As this medal requires the recommendation of the individuals’ commanding officer it can only be awarded to serving personnel whose conduct and performance throughout their time in the Army has been exemplary. In March 2015 the intention to introduce a single new long service medal for all three Service Arms was announced by the government to replace the LSGC and as such this is the final time this medal will be presented to 29 Regt personnel in Germany as a new medal will be in place as of 2016.

There was also the presentation of the Royal Warrant to WO2 Elizabeth Barker and WO2 Karl Poole. The Queen’s warrant is presented on selection to promote from Senior Non-Commissioned Officer to Warrant Officer. WO2 Barker moves to become the Senior Movement Controller and WO2 Poole the Squadron Sergeant Major of 99 Postal Courier and Movement Control Squadron based in Gütersloh, Germany. This was followed by presentations to civilian staff who work in the Bielefeld Travel Centre in recognition of their commitment to supporting military movement between the UK and Germany. Overall a fantastic day in recognition of the hard work that 29 Regiment military and civilian personnel put in to supporting the British Army around the world.
