1 Supply Squadron Messing (Re-Opening of the Renovated QOGLR Wallace-Dutton Memorial Messing Village).

1 Supply Squadron organised a unique Messing event on Friday 12 January 2018 to formally open the renovated Wallace-Dutton Memorial Messing Village, named in honour of Major Wallace-Dutton, formerly Officer Commanding 28 Fuel and General Transport Squadron who tragically passed away following a battle against serious illness.

The Messing Village was first established in St. Omer Barracks, Aldershot, in 2011 and has been the focal point for social cohesion actives so vitally important to Regimental Kaida ever since. While fit for purpose, it had been identified there was scope for improvement to the facility. The previous Commander, Colonel P S Reehal MBE, directed that a series of advancements be implemented within the Messing Village as one of the QOGLR Heritage Projects. Yesterday represented the realisation of those improvements as the Regiment formally re-opened the facility.

The project lead for the renovation of the Messing Village was SSgt Lalkaji Gurung (SQMS 1 Supply Squadron), who was supported by key personalities including the Gurkha Major, successive Quartermasters and the 1 Supply Squadron hierarchy. His outstanding team of enablers who worked tirelessly to implement the improvements consisted of Cpl Nauraj Pun, LCpl Sanjay Gurung and Pte Suman Gurung. Gurujiharu, you have been exceptional, and your hard-fought endeavours much appreciated - shaybas!

The re-opening was a huge success. As well as being wholly fit for for purpose, the facility looks superb following the renovations to the Messing Hut and surrounding infrastructure. Following a speech by the Commander, the plaque to commemorate the re-opening was unveiled and an exceptional Messing was enjoyed by all attendees.

Concurrently Major Jamie Monument (Officer Commanding 1 Supply Squadron) availed of the opportunity to welcome two new officers to the Regiment. 2Lt Copson and 2Lt Stephenson, we are delighted that you are now a part of our Regimental family. You have so much to look forward to as Troop Commanders within 10 QOGLR, and boundless opportunities to positively influence the soldiers you have been selected to lead. Enjoy your service - it will bring you immense satisfaction. 1 Supply Squadron also bid an extremely fond farewell to Capt Jenny Milton, who is due to deploy on an operational tour imminently. Memsaheb, your contribution to the Squadron has been exceptional. Your leadership, drive and determination to do the utmost on behalf of those in your charge have brought out the absolute best within the soldiers in your sub-Unit. As a Regiment we know you will be a pinnacle of excellence during your tour. Bon voyage - you will be missed.

Special thanks are offered to the following key personalities:

Lt Col Woodley who, as the 10 QOGLR QM, provided the initial G4 lead for the original Messing Village undertaking in 2011.

Lt Col MacGregor (Aldershot Garrison Commander) and Mrs Sharon Meikle (Aldershot Garrison SO2 Estates) for their unswerving support to the Regiment.

Mr Hitesh Chauhan (11 Infantry Brigade) for his SME input in releasing funding to support the project.

Major Ian Tyrrell and Major Huw Williams - the 10 QOGLR Quartermasters who provided the impetus and drive to push the undertaking through to successful conclusion.

The Queen’s Gurkha Engineers for releasing their technical SMEs to assist in infrastructure improvements.

LCpl Suresh Ale Magar, who was the lead for organising superb Messing - Guruji, shaybas to you and your team for the provision of such delicious food.
