Movement Controller receives a JFCNP Commander’s Commendation

Sgt Senior was assigned to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Joint Force Command Naples (JFCNP) in Apr 2014 as the Transport and Movement staff assistant. Throughout his tenure Sgt Senior has taken part in a multitude of NATO assurance measure exercises, including Ex NOBLE JUMP (Poland) and Ex TRIDENT JOUST (Romania). As a result of his efforts throughout these exercises, Sgt Senior has received a JFCNP Commander’s Commendation.

Sgt Senior fills a highly visible and demanding role supporting the four-star Operational Commander, his Command Group, and any visiting dignitaries.

“The experience gained from working in such a unique and diverse environment is invaluable; it’s not always easy working in such intense conditions but it is certainly something that everyone can benefit from”.

Outside the Office

Sgt Senior has found time to represent JFCNP in the annual Field Gun competition at HMS COLLINGWOOD. Having the opportunity to represent NATO and The Royal Logistic Corps in this world famous event is a once in a lifetime experience. “The feeling when marching out on competition day in front of hundreds of spectators is unmatchable. Anyone who ever has the chance to take part in this historic tradition should grasp it whole heartedly”.

Sgt Senior has also taken part in and finished the annual multinational Mount Vesuvius 10km race. Again this would be recommended to anyone who likes a good challenge, after all, how many people can say they have run up an active volcano?

 

The Royal Logistic Corps

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. ...
