Based at Carlton Barracks in Leeds. LUOTC consists of:

Hirsch VC Company - (Infantry Wing)

A bunch of BA Underwater Basketweaving (Hons) students trying to prove they're hard . Members of Hirsch coy tend to be the more macho sort of Walt or pale-faced, quiet and slightly unsettling young women with a distinctly unladylike interst in violence, and spend their entire student loan in one phone call to the Arktis catalogue. You can tell them around the uni campus because they think it's cool to wear a softee jacket to lectures.

Stones Troop - (RA Wing)

Imagine for a moment taking a bunch of total biffs, giving those few with a driving licence (ink still wet of course), an HGV license; throwing a load of complicated and dangerous kit at them and trying to make it work. This is the onerous responsibility of the poor benighted WOII, fresh from SMIG course who has to make an artillery battery out of 40 part-timers who stay 3 years at the longest. Consists of:

  • Guns: Big shooters, Officer Cadets tring to work out by commitee which wheel to turn to make it point in the right direction.
  • CP: Officer Cadets trying to work out how a radio works.
  • OP: like being a real FOO but without the hard work.

The first wing of Leeds UOTC to adopt a title, this entry makes it clear that the other wings decided it was a jolly wheeze and if there was a bandwagon going they'd jump on.

Chard Troop - (RE Wing)

The hapless regular WO given the PSI job here usually turns up ready to teach combat engineering to the eager young minds of the OTC's finest. The reality is that this is where all the biffs of the OTC go and the training regime consists of constructing one bridge a year and spending the rest of the time in the nearest bar. Your taxes at work ladies and gentlemen.

Traditionally the RE wing would see an intake of reasonably attractive females each year who by the following year would have developed arrses as wide as the cabs of the Four Tonners that had become their domain.

Romeo Troop - (Sigs Wing)

Have no proper signals kit so they operate the 349s for the Infantry. Tend to have the fittest girls. It was always thus, but strangely these girls don't seem to suffer the same arrse-expanding fate of their sisters in arms over in Chard Troop. This is because they are being shagged by the O/CDTs from Stones Trp. Unfortunately after an incident involving a certain Officer Cadet 'Tank' and the Sig's OC, the Sigs wing had be be disbanded, but not before their SSM had a week to rag them senseless enough that half of them left before the rest were merged into the other wings.

Leadership Cadre - (LDC)

AKA, Spastic Squadron, Reject Regiment or the Late Developers Course, was a shortlived invention of one CO in order to deal with the final year students that the unit didn't really want to keep, and wanted even less to influence the new recruits, but couldn't send away. The LDC, was intended to keep the people rejected from staff positions away from the rest of the unit. In 2008 however, the LDC was labeled 'a fucking waste of time' and was disbanded, with the LDC merging back into playing enemy for the first and second years.
