REME is slightly different, we used to have a Corps RSM but being a technical Corps it was decided it would be more appropriate to have a technical bod as the senior non commissioned rep, so the post of Corps ASM was created. This appears to be working well as he has much better appreciation of what is the Corps main business - mending things you others ave broke.

For Brum, given your venerable status - both age and rank, I assume you mean the 3rd/7th amalgamation. The name you mention does not ring any bells from my time with the QOH.

Brum,

On the question of QOH, there were 2 or 3 Senior NCO's with Polish sounding names. I was not in 'B' Squadron but in HQ Squadron and I have a photo of the HQ Sqn personnel of that era. After my meal this evening I will have a dig around the loft and check on the names. Will get back to you.

We already have an Army RSM - he is the RSM of London District, the most senior RSM of the Army and has regular audiences with Her Majesty.

In essence, I have been told, that he(or perhaps She in the near future) will bring up issues at the most senior and highest level and, in the past, has never been afraid to do so.

I beg to differ, His (and unless things change, will always be so, as its an Guards (Infantry) appointment) is 'Garrison Sergeant Major, London District' and I think the Academy Sergeant Major, may have something to say about seniority. The GSM may have audiences with the Queen, but these are on ceremonial matters, which is his speciality.

Brum,

On question of QOH, have found the photo of HQ Squadron taken around 1958. No names on the photo but I do recognise a Polish Sgt sitting two down from me. Cannot remember his name. I must be post amalgamation as the QOH people are all wearing the QOH badge instead of the old 7th Hussars one.
Can scan and send you the photo to your email address.

Re your comment on the "Brig's bog". I imagine that's a reference to bowel movements (ahem). Don't concern yourself about that sort of thing old chap. When you get your chateau, (as you surely will), you will find, as I recently did, that your ADC will make arrangements to take care of things like that. I now have a servant who goes for me.

You are correct Mike. The ACSM is senior to the GSM Lond Dist however Conductors by rank are more senior to a 'normal' WO1 as we know.

This creates a little conundrum. The most senior 'Soldier' of the British Army is certainly not a 22year service Private or LCpl, has to be a WO1 and by your kind correction would therefore be the Academy Sergeant Major.

Re this WO1 saga and the seniority thingy, why don't we adopt the idea of having an overall Sergeant-Major of the Army. It seems to work in other armies. He could be at the Chief of the General Staff's side to advise on all 'Soldier' matters etc. He could be one voice instead of the top listening to many voices.

Hi Shelldrake,

Well, I was thinking along the lines of the Academy Sergeant-Major who wears the cap badge of RMAS. Perhaps a one of badge could be designed to indicate he/she is associated with the CGS.

I noticed that a lot of officers from the last war were in what was called the General Service Corps and wore a coat of arms as both cap badges and collar dogs. So the badge could be a coat of arms surrounded by a laurel wreath. Of course he would need to wear this type of badge on his sleave. The collar badges could indicate his association to the CGS in some form. It wouldn't take at lot of imagination to introduce this to the Army and could be an inspiration to serving WO1 who have no inclination of taking a commission and could serve until the age of 55, thus increasing his experience. I also think that perhaps this Warrant Officer would serve a period of around 5 years. This would allow the position to not stagnate and bring in new ideas to the job.

Remember that the CGS does a similar job of representation BUT of the whole Army through the Chief of the Defence Staff in advising the Government on military matters etc.
I'm sure that there are experts around that could come up with a few more ideas etc.
