No 915 —Volume LXXVII March, 1972 FRONT COVER Sgt Peter Lord demonstrates MMG to most interested potential recruit at Wimbledon. The London Scottish Regimental Gazette LEADER RECRUITMENT AT a recent meeting it was decided to take various courses of action to this end. 1 The recruiting Sgt would arrange visits to Hostels by recruiting teams to commence as soon as poss'ible. 2 Mr Renton-Green will circulate newly joined members of the Rugger Club and also a selection of Scottish Companies in London. 3 Mr Rutherford-Young will arrange a series of Lectures to members of CCF Contingents in London by Captain Aitken with a view to inviting them to a Demonstration/At Home at HQ. 4 A competition will take place as from January 1,1972. The prizes for the most number of recruits introduced will be as follows:— 1st Prize £25 2nd Prize £15 3rd „£10 4th „£5. These will be presented on Church Parade this year for the period ended October 31,1972, and the only conditions will be that to qualify the recruits must have successfully completed a recruits course and the 1st prize will not be presented for fewer than 3 recruits introduced. Members may of course form syndicates between themselves. I would only add that an influx of recruits is necessary not only to preserve the present strength of the Coy but also to take advantage of a rumoured further expansion. I have agreed with the CO that we would favour such an expansion especially if it took the form of a second coy within 1/51 HV as a first stage. If this happened it might cause a certain amount of overcrowding in the Drill Hall but remember that not so long ago we had a battalion in the building and if the drill hall were to be redeveloped this would be catered for. Such a redevelopment is far more likely to happen if an expansion has taken place following an increase in numbers. One thing follows from another but it all hinges on increased numbers.
