Seven teams went through to the final of the Battalion Relay Quiz held at Dechmont CTC on Sunday. The general knowledge of the teams were tested with questions on subjects as diverse as Geography and The Bible – which usually did not get a press of a buzzer – but answers were quicker at coming when the topics were Films, TV and Pop Music. It was not the more obscure questions that always delivered the wrong answers. One cadet could not answer the ‘military knowledge’ question – ‘How many detachments are there in the Battalion?’ The Detachment Commander has some revision work to do there.
6 Troop Scots DG led from the start, but midway through the quiz, they lost their way and were overtaken by A Tp RA, who had been snapping at their heels from the beginning.
The result was: Winners – A Tp RA; Runners-up – 6 Tp Scots DG; 3rd – 1 Pl RSB; 4th= – E Pl RHF and 2 Pl RSB; 6th – F Pl RHF; 7th – B Pl RHF.
