Vehicle challenge sets new world record

3 Regiment has set a monumental new Guinness World Record – a new distance record for pulling a vehicle non-stop for 12 hours.

On 5 Mar, twelve men, made up of 3 Regt RLC and a member of DHL Supply Chain, pulled a VW Transporter van through the night in Abingdon, to smash the current GWR of 8km achieving a new distance record of over 76km!

“What a truly inspirational group of officers and soldiers. This is the very reason that I love what I do and why I love our Corps, the Army and the officers and soldier within it,” said WO1 PS Broom, Corps SM RLC.

“Well done 3 Regt RLC, you absolutely nailed it and you are the very definition of what the #ArmyConfidence campaign is trying to encapsulate. Congratulations!”

ABF The Soldiers Charity and Mind, which have both supported the Regt’s soldiers over the last year, will both benefit from the challenge which aims to raise £10,000 in donations.

There is still time to help the team smash their target by donating on the Pulling Together 2020 fundraising page.

Congratulations and well done to Major Jacquie Barlow, an OC within ITC Catterick, who has successfully completed her attempt to run 61 half marathons back-to-back over 61 days. Major Barlow took on this gruelling challenge with the aim of raising £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after both she and her family received help from the charity when she had a tumour in 2011. She also raised money for a local school. Macmillan Cancer Support provides vital physical, financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families at a time where the NHS is stretched. Please help to support Major Barlow and Macmillan by donating to her Just Giving page here: #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
‘STRIKE’ is a new concept in the British Army and with it, 1 Regiment RLC has faced a new challenge - how to remain agile and mobile, yet maintain C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence) with a reduced logistical footprint. 1 Regiment RLC has met this test turning to innovation with the aim of being constantly mobile yet able to maintain several lines of communication over vast distances. One possible solution is the MECC from Weatherhaven - a custom off the shelf (COTS) capability that will enhance the ‘just in time’ logistics on the modern battlefield. For more information about this potential capability, please contact Captain Alan Mcallister, RSO 1 Regiment RLC: ... See MoreSee Less
