Never before has the world seen a finer body of fighting men (and women allegedly). Well, not so much a fine body of fighting men and women, but some of the bodies of the fighting women are admittedly fine.

Yes from this fine city and Edinburgh University came Lord Haldane who founded the UOTC's back in 19xx. Not only the oldest UOTC but also the only UOTC to have a Royal Honorary Colonel (so it’s been said).

Eligibility

CEUOTC recruits from 5 institutions

  • The University of Edinburgh
  • Heriot-Watt University
  • Edinburgh Napier University
  • Queen Margaret University
  • Edinburgh College of Art

CEUOTC's ORBAT has recently changed under FAS and is as follows:-

Haldane Company (MTQ 1)

Consisting of 3 Platoons:-

  • 1 (Marne) Platoon
  • 2 (Kohima) Platoon
  • 3 (Blenheim) Platoon

Christison Squadron (MTQ 2)

Sub Units

After completion of MTQ 1 OCdts may select to join a Sub Unit, choosing from:-

  • Royal Engineers
  • Royal Artillery
  • Advanced Infantry

Trivia

Once the proud owners of its own web board. Based loosely on ARRSE that has sadly been shut down since a certain incident which we don’t talk about involving:-

  • 1 x OCdt
  • 1 x camera
  • 1 x balaclava
  • 1 x "Red Hand" of Ulster flag
  • 1 x GPMG
  • 1 x Ex-CEUOTC Student Journalist (minus integrity)

When combined they resulted in a bit of a media stew and said web board was rapidly removed.
