RLC 25



On the 5 Apr 18, we will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the formation of The Royal Logistic Corps.

This will also mark the beginning on a year’s worth of celebrations and commemorations that truly begin on 18 Apr 18.

The afternoon will see the Corps formed up and on parade at ATC Pirbright. Five hundred officers and soldiers, representing every regiment in the Corps and those serving wider at E2, will march on as HRH The Princess Royal reviews the parade and takes the salute.

There is a lot going on throughout the year and some really exciting prospects to look forward to including:

the head and shoulders with straps.
