Who's Who of the 44th
Official Members of the 44th for the year 2004-2005 ....
|Sam Coe - Chairman 2004/2005
Having served as Secretary from 2002 to 2004, now brings to bear his experience in the role of chairman of the unit; with his individual ideas and leadership qualities, Coe-ee also has a great singing voice which he is not afraid to share!
Distinguishing features: Muscular; Buff
|Chris Gallant - Unit Secretary 2004/2005
Known to many as "Chrissy G" but also goes by name of "Happy Hands" - but that's a story for another time. With his wide smile and unconventional ways, Chris is just Chris. Good at organising big public events such as school Quiz Nights & Assembly. Deserved promotion to School Captain, although some say that power has gone to his head!
Distinguishing features: Wide smile, Ken Docherty quiff
Nicknames: Chrissy G; Happy Hans
|Sam Johnson - Quartermaster 2003/2004/2005
Sam continues to be an efficient unit kit manager although there are still some who say he's still just a little power crazy. Even so, Sam brings great qualities to the group, even though some judge him as being 'over enthusiastic' at times! His inventiveness has brought some exciting moments to unit meetings - such as the bomb diffusing event at a Golden Welly Challenge!
Distinguishing features: Extreme music tastes (if that counts as a distinguishing feature)
Rich is competitive and cheery like a little sport elf. Musically talented - his wind arrangements have brought the house down on numerous occasions (although not recommended in the close confines of a hike tent). Always reliable and in the thick of it when adventurous activities are planned!
Distinguishing features: Big scar on thigh; blond rugby physique
Nicknames: Sheepy; Rich
Unconventional. Not very conversational - the quieter member of the unit. His opinion however is often sought and highly valued. Has a disconcerting habit of just 'appearing' at your side - just like Lurch from the Addams Family! Loves a drop o' the black stuff - after several doses his Hyde-like alter ego Bob the Adventurer has been known to take over control!
Distiguishing features: Tall; Cheesey grin
Nicknames: Rob; Lofty
A valued member of the unit. Participates in all unit events - specialities being Lawn Darts (reigning unit champion), Dragon Boat Racing and D of E. Unofficial Unit Photographer - can always be relied on to get that compromising shot!
Distinguishing features: Gerbil features; not tall
Interested in sports, especially football. Likes comedy and action films. When using sharp implements, must have first aider standing by - "Hmmm, this knife looks sharp ...."! Always seems to be skint when it's his round. Fond of Nessie.
Distinguishing features: Innocent expression and happy smile
Daniel is the natural hard man of the unit, with his nail biting, tooth slashing and milk drinking ways he has become the rebel of the unit. And just remember, never shake his hand after a viewing of Road Trip!
Distinguishing features: Wears glasses; skinny genius
Very sporty; very random; likes rugby & cricket. Easy going and friendly personality, Paul has proved a good team player to date.
Distinguishing features: Random knowledge; craziest hair apart from Joycey
Nicknames: Eggy; Eggman; Pablo
Drifted our way from the 51st Scout Group and has been granted "joint nationality" - or is it "asylum"? - under the nebulous Explorer Scout membership rules. Always trying out something new with computer peripherals.

New member this year - rather quiet with occasional bursts of speed
