RG Soldier wins Recruiting Award

Colour Sergeant Winston Payas of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment recently attended a Regular Recruiters Course at the joint Royal Naval and Army Schools of Recruiting. On completion of the course he was awarded the Whistler Shield.

This is an award given by the Army School of Recruiting to the student assessed as having made the greatest improvement over the duration of the course.

The Chief Instructor of the Army School of Recruiting said, “He is to be congratulated on achieving a good pass on what is a very hard course, especially given his previous unfamiliarity with the recruiting system. He is more than capable of taking his place in any recruiting office in the country and has loads of ideas for new approaches to recruiting on the Rock. He has been an excellent ambassador for the Royal Gibraltar Regiment.”

Colour Sergeant Payas will now move on from his previous appointment in HQ Company (Thompson’s Battery) and take up a new job as the Regiment’s recruiting Senior NCO, where he will spearhead the Regiment’s latest recruiting drive.
