Army Apprenticeship Awards 2018

Lcpl Tem Meh from 27 Regiment RLC was nominated for the Army Apprentice of the Year award and although he didn’t win it was a very tight affair.

LCpl Tem Meh displayed an incredible level of professional maturity and determination whilst assigned to 27 Regiment RLC, with what his Regt calls an “unwavering focus to achieve professional and personal development at a level and pace unmatched by his peers.”

This was encapsulated by his completion of the Logistics Operations Advanced Apprenticeship in 2016 and his attainment of the Level 3 Logistic Operations Apprenticeship Scheme.

During his Apprenticeship, LCpl Tem Meh was assigned to the Falkland Islands, which may have been an insurmountable barrier in terms of distance and connectivity for less determined individuals.

But LCpl Tem Meh did not let this hinder his training or weaken his drive for self-improvement. He remained fully focused throughout and completed every aspect with a flawless commitment to achieve his goal.

LCpl Tem Meh’s training was conducted to the highest standard, enhanced by his mentoring approach to others during the classroom phase.

Incredibly driven and proactive, LCpl Tem Meh took it upon himself to complete further work and extra-curricular tasks to professionally and personally improve himself maintaining a high standard throughout.

His Regt said that he is an excellent ambassador of the Apprenticeship Scheme. He kept his chain of command informed, showing impressive management and communication skills throughout.

“LCpl Tem Meh’s performance has been exemplary which is down to the hard work and commitment he has shown. This outstanding soldier wholeheartedly deserves recognition. He is an absolute role model for what can be achieved through determination, resourcefulness and application.”

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
