    Thanks to The Guide for all the info. My son is starting in three weeks but has been given a troop number rather than a troop name. Am wondering if Howard etc are split down further or whether this is the troop for training if he passes ROP?

    All Troops have numbers that go with them all the way through Recruit Training. What @The guide is referring to is that during the four weeks of ROP they are located in Normandy Block and the two names Howard and Lovatt refers to the specific weeks of ROP. If your lad passes ROP he will move onto RT with the troop number as told.
