THE ONE’S THAT GOT AWAY
The appointment of Regimental Sergeant Major is of great importance to the post holder and Battalion alike. Hopefully it can be filled from within the unit, However, on occasions the position will be filled from outside the Battalion. This can be good or bad and I reserve comment.

It therefore stands to reason that there will be personnel from the 1st Battalion who get promoted to WO1 (RSM) and have to take An appointment outside the Battalion. This list will be incomplete, however in my humble opinion the following would have been an assett to any organisation. Again they are not in any order.
