Royal Logistic Corps

The Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) provides constant support to the Army, both in peacetime and on operations. From vehicle parts and tools to ammunition, rations and water, the RLC maintains the Army’s operational capability by providing the required item, in the required quantity, in the required place and at the required time.

With twelve direct entry trades, our soldiers are highly trained professional tradesmen who serve with all parts of the British Army, as well as elements of the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. We're also experts at supporting, protecting and advising civilians who are affected by conflicts, natural disasters or any other situation where we're needed. You'll find the RLC wherever you find the Army….it's our job to deploy, move, receive, cater for, resupply, sustain and recover military and humanitarian operations around the world, whatever the terrain and whatever the threat.

An army marches on its stomach, and it's the Chef’s job to give soldiers a balanced and healthy diet, at home or overseas. You cook for everyone from new recruits to royalty, producing tasty meals in static kitchens or on the move in the field. Expert training teaches you how to cook nutritious meals, whatever the circumstances

RLC soldiers are renowned for being reliable and highly skilled - fit, organised and ready for action. Our people get the job done, what ever it takes, in any conditions.

There are more regiments in The RLC than in any other Arm or Service of the Army. They are located all around the UK and some are even based overseas.
