Gold for RLC SSgt at World Masters Games

A SSgt from 4 Regiment RLC has won a gold medal in the Men’s 400 metre race at the World Masters Games in Turin.

SSgt Musa Audu, who is stationed with 33 General Support Sqn, also picked up a silver medal in the 200m Men’s Race.

Because of his successful background in top level athletics (including being part of the bronze winning Nigerian 4x400m relay team at the 2004 Olympics), he was chosen to speak on behalf of the athletes by Reading the Oath at the Games’ opening ceremony.

“I would like to thank God Almighty for a great success and it’s such a great honour and privilege to be made the face of the game by choosing me to take part in Reading the Oath.”

“I feel great winning the Men’s 400m and its such a great felling to see that all hard work I have put in during training has paid off. I’m looking forward to the next World Masters Games in Japan in 2021.”

SSgt Musa Audu would like to thank the CO of 4 Regiment RLC, Lt Col Yates and Maj J Lowe OC 33 Sqn for allowing him the time to train and bring success to the Corp and Army in general.

Over the weekend, 154 Scottish Regiment RLC hosted Exercise MUDMASTER, the annual off-road driver training challenge that tests drivers’ skills and precision behind the wheel of different vehicles. The event, which took place in Dunfermline, Stirling and Linlithgow in Scotland, aims to develop the safe driving skills of the Corps’ soldiers with conditions that are designed to test their capabilities to the fullest. More than 100 teams entered, with both regular, reserve and civilian personnel taking part in challenges including navigation, observation, discipline and safety; all essential skills needed for deploying on future operations. #BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ...

RLC personnel from BATUK have been helping to make donations of food and books to Hope and Homes Recreation Centre, a local orphanage home to 56 children in Kenya. Hope and Homes first became a registered recreation centre in 2011 by Suzanne Wangiru. Suzanne created the centre in order to rehabilitate street children, as well as orphans and young girls that have been rescued form early marriages. Cpl Shannon Stevens who is currently on detachment from 13AASR, commented on her experience visiting this fundamental centre: “When we entered the Centre, we were taken by surprise as there were more children than we had imagined there would be. We helped to distribute food, drawing books and reading books and the children were ecstatic. It was a surreal experience at Hope and Homes, full of differing emotions, but it was definitely a great opportunity for the members of CSS 2nd Line to engage with the community creating a better working relationship with BATUK.”Major R Crane MBE RLC, SO2 CSS BATUK commented: “Witnessing the delight on the kids’ faces when they received the books and clothes that had been donated by friends and families across UK was very humbling. There are so many children in need and every little helps.” #BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
