Royal Visit for 9 Regiment

HRH The Princess Royal, Colonel in Chief of the RLC, has paid a Royal visit to Buckley Barracks, the HQ of 9 Regiment RLC.

Her visit took place in company with the Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Brigadier Murray, the Corps Adjutant and the Corps Sergeant Major.

The visitors were greeted by the CO and RSM at the Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess and were given the opportunity to meet a range of soldiers and officers, including those who have been on recent overseas deployments and those who have been great sporting ambassadors for the Regt.

HRH also presented Operational service medals to Capt Butterworth, Maj Player and Maj Gardner and met some of the families of soldiers and officers serving with the Regt.

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. ...
