WO2 SHORTLISTED FOR RISING STARS AWARD

Warrant Officer Class 2, Susan Keir of 13 Air Assault Support Regiment, has been shortlisted for a Rising Stars 2020 Award.

WO2 Keir, who was nominated by her Officer Commanding Major William Cook, has reached the final ten for the Logistics and Transport category.

“It would be fantastic if we could get WO2 Keir an award, I think she thoroughly deserves it,” said Maj Cook.

Selected from an original list of over 1000 nominees, WO2 Keir was been nominated for her outstanding contributions to the British Army. Throughout her eighteen-year career, she has developed skills in both her vocational field, including gaining a broad knowledge of the Defence Logistics Spectrum, as well as contributing to the wider aspects of her military role, namely representing the Royal Logistic Corps on the Netball and Recruiting teams.

“Very much in line with my professional development, my sporting development has witnessed me go from team member to team organiser and mentor,” explains WO2 Keir.

WO2 Keir’s varied and challenging career has seen her entrusted to carry out tasks of the rank above her current level, further allowing her to develop strong management and leadership skills.

The WeAreTheCity award, now in its sixth year, aims to showcase remarkable women within the UK representing varying industries and professions.

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.

‘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: Alan.Mcallister364@mod.gov.uk ... See MoreSee Less
