There are over 4,500 Reservists across the Greater London Region who work with the Regulars in the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.

They are highly trained women and men, often deployed on operations at home and overseas. They commit to an annual training programme in their spare time, gain new skills and qualifications, and are paid for their time. Reservists are a vital part of the Armed Forces and form around 19% of the nation’s defence capacity. Read a little more about what they’ve been up to over the last year.
