Celebrating Reserves Day 2020
Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve as part of the military.
The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are integral to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas, particularly providing capability in specialist areas such as medical and cyber.

Deployed to Iraq in 2003, Employed as Comms Troop SSGT at Present until I take up my new post as SSM for 239 Sqn RLC based in Dunfermline.
