Dan I should have used the full rank - WO1 (ASM). Hussar 100 has given the meaning of ASM, it is a rank/appointment in REME.

Dan,

Does ASM mean Army Sergeant Major. In the Brit Army it could mean Academy Sgt-Major, Articifer Sgt-Major.

Got me wires crossed folks. I know that an ASM is a REME WO1 but I somehow was looking at Dan M's question when he asked 'what is an ASM' and I thought since Dan was in the Canadian Regiment, they have an Army Sergeant Major.
I will now go into the ' silly corner' for 5 minutes. Must be all the wheetabix I eat

I now know the feeling Hussar100. Just like a Hussar without his horse, but gradually getting used to it. (laughing in my cupped hands)

Never had any problems with the rank & file treating young officers in such a way during my service. In point of fact, by giving them utter respect in accordance with the traditions of the Army etc, you would reap the benefit in later years as that young officer could and in my case did become my future CO. In fact one young officer straight out of Sandhurst became a Brigadier in later years, and in fact was a one time Commandant of the Army Apprentice College Harrogate. His name Bill backhouse. Terrific officer.

Totally agree though in my expierience the young orficer was normally guided/nurtured/bollocked by his Tp Sgt! If I came across a nots so good Capt/Maj I would try and find out who there Tp Sgt was when they were a young subaltern, chances were he was crap! Shocked

To complete circle, the correct abbreviation for Academy Sergeant Major at Sandhurst is AcSM

Some amazing history and material here, since I created the thread about 7 years ago! Thanks for all the many contributions, up till a couple of years ago... seems the well has run dry since. A lot of material about more recent times, including the amalgamation into QRH, still interested in anything from the 1960s but I guess chances of that are fading as more of the members from that era pass on (my Dad left us in 1992, would have been 96 by now if still here).

I do know that several members of the regiment from the 1960s came to Western Australia upon retirement; in addition to my father Sgt David William Sheldrick there was certainly RSM Bill Holberton, and at least one other whose name escapes me now.

Welcome back

Your father was not the only member of the 8th Hussars/QRIH to emigrate to Australia. I know of another person who moved to the Adelaide area at the same time of your father
