The Cove is delighted to present the recording of our second #CoveTalk ‘Brilliant at the Basics’ with Warrant Officer Don Spinks, Regimental Sergeant Major - Army. 

The aim, as ever, is to help Army evolve its intellectual edge through giving serving soldiers and officers access to top-quality material.  We also hope to provide an opportunity to facilitate unit PME and foster mess culture by hosting guest speakers at no cost to members across Army. 

For Australian Army members who missed out on the opportunity to ask their question during the live feed, RSM-A is happy to take your questions during unit visits, or alternatively leave your questions on the Cove website.
