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.

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. ...
