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.
Here at Corps Security, our team consists of many Reservists. This includes our very own regional director, John Ford, who was recently mobilised into regular service for 10 months with the RAF Police at Brize Norton. In support of Reserves Day on Wednesday 23rd June, our Reservists will wear their uniforms in civilian life, showing their pride and dedication to our military.
Reservists are everywhere, but you might not know it. Composed of citizen-soldiers who combine their military role with a civilian career, the existence of Reserve Forces allows a nation to reduce its peacetime military expenditures while maintaining a force ready to be called upon when needed.
On Reserves Day, during this years’ Armed Forces week, some of our mysterious Reservists will stop blending into society and show their colours for all to see. With so many of these brave men and women in our team, check out our social media platforms to see some of them in all their glory. There may be a couple of names or faces that surprise you.
