In addition it is closely linked with 7 Regiment RLC and provides trained manpower to support them in conducting operations around the world. In recent years it has deployed to Afghanistan and with the United Nations in Cyprus.
The Regiment has the following squadrons:
Each of the squadrons is equipped with heavy lift vehicles which can carry 15 tons of equipment cross country. The capacity can be doubled by adding a trailer. In addition to heavy lift vehicles, the Squadrons are also equipped with the rough terrain fork lift truck, fuel tankers, Landrovers, Field Catering Equipment and modern weapon systems.
Our soldiers are highly trained and skilled in a wide variety of trades, including: Drivers, Communication Specialists, Chefs, Military Clerks and Combat Medical Technicians. Each squadron also has a Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineer (REME) workshop section who provide the trained Vehicle Mechanics, Electricians, Metal Smiths and Recovery Mechanics with skills and expertise in the repair and recovery all of all the Squadron's equipment.
Each squadron has three troops and a Squadron Headquarters. Initial recruits join X-Ray Troop and remain with them until they complete their basic recruit training. Next they progress to Yankee troop where they learn to drive and enable them to obtain category B (Car) and C (LGV 2) licences. Soldiers can then learn how to operate one of the Squadron's heavy lift vehicles.
