Regiment pleased with recruits


Share post:

THE BARBADOS REGIMENT remains an organisation where young people can find opportunities, and commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Glyne Grannum is happy with the calibre of the recruits.
In an interview yesterday after a service at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Bay Street, St Michael, to commemorate the 61st anniversary of the Regiment receiving its first “colours”, Grannum said most joining had a genuine desire to serve.
“Generally speaking, yes I am happy with the level of recruits.
“We, like other organisations, have the challenge of attractiveness, as what would have been attractive to individuals five or ten years ago may have waned a little bit, but generally speaking we have been well served with Barbadians of a high quality coming forward to enlist in the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) and more specifically, in the Barbados Regiment,” he said.
