321 EOD & Search Squadron of 11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC hosted a special guest, the Colonel-in-Chief, HRH The Princess Royal, as part of its anniversary commemorating 50 years of operations in Northern Ireland. The Sqn was also joined by the Colonel RLC, Colonel Jon West ADC.

11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC is widely dispersed across 14 locations in the UK. The Regiment routinely responds to around 2,500 operational EOD and Search call-outs each year in support of the police and other major events.

The Corps’ vision for 2025 and beyond is bold:

‘A world-class, innovative and adaptable Corps, sustaining continuous activity at home and around the globe. All underpinned by a people-focussed ethos and the exploitation of data and cutting-edge technology.’

The RLC is a unique Corps in terms of size, diversity and experience. No-one can do what it does. But to achieve the Corps’ vision, the Corps’ methods, capabilities and required skills must change.

To achieve this, four objectives will address: People & Ethos, Exploiting Technology, External Integration and Communication and Influence. The RLC has a huge amount to offer the Nation. Please read the strategy, talk about it, be proud of it and share your ideas to help it to evolve.

To explain this further, The RLC’s Strategy on a page can be seen below.

A new strategy for The Royal Logistic Corps

Defence is faced with an increasingly uncertain global and strategic outlook. Defence Support underpins this global activity, but maintaining today’s arrangements to support a force that will be
operating at greater reach and tempo is not an option – a transformation is required.

What is true for Defence Support is true for the Royal Logistic Corps. So the Corps can play its part, the Master General of Logistics, Lt Gen Sir Mark Poffley KCB OBE, has launched the Corps’ new strategy, which will enable The RLC to adjust to the needs of the Army, Defence and the Nation.
