Conductors’ Parchment Ceremony 2019

The RLC’s 2019 Conductors’ Parchment Ceremony held at The RLC Officers Mess in Deepcut saw five senior soldiers promoted to the prestigious role of Conductor in their respective trades.

WO1 Neil Scott has been promoted to Head of the Driver Trade, WO1 Karl Arnott, HoT Marine Engineer, WO1 Kevin Bennett to HoT Systems Analyst, Jethro Davies HoT VSS and Simon Griffiths, HoT Chef trades.

His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester, accompanied by Lieutenant General M W Poffley OBE, presented parchments to five newly selected Conductors.

WO1 Senior Conductor Rob Ladell, said: “To be head of trade you are already the technical expert with the various specialisations.”

“The conductor is the person that then is pulled from within those ranks by the corps headquarters, as someone who does further and wider engagement from a capability training and personnel point of view.”

In addition to the new appointments, Conductors’ Coins were presented to the most deserving soldiers below the rank of WO1 for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Road Team Captain and Manager Maj Michelle Debono-Evans and 2IC Capt Sue Chittock combined with Major Tracey Mackenzie-Rayner for Mountain biking changed this by leading from the front on the bike and also igniting a successful recruitment drive for new ladies. The RLC ladies now field 4 of the 10 members of the Army Ladies Road Race Team and one of the 5 members of the Army XC MTB Team. Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
