Logistic Brigade exercises war capability

A 102 Logistic Brigade exercise is aiming to train and integrate regular and reserve soldiers and move them forward in their war fighting capability.

Ex HALBERD DAWN is designed to exercise the Brigade’s component parts of 150, 158 and 159 Regts RLC, 254 Med Regt and elements of 6 and 7 Regt RLC, within a realistic and challenging training environment.

There are 300 personnel and 180 vehicles on the exercise which runs from 7 to 21 Sep 19.

Training includes a CAST style planning cycle for the reserve staff officers and assistants supported by their regular counter parts from 6 Regt and 253 Med and 102 Brigade staff. 

There has been a supply loop established from Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, Grantham to Thetford, by 150 and 158 Regts and a Forward Supply Area run by 159 Regt with, for the first time an MRS medical reception facility that includes, medical, dental, mental health, dentist and physio capability.

This is the first time these units have trained together at this scale for a number of years. It is anticipated that this Brigade led exercise will be repeated possibly on a bi-annual basis.

Congratulations and well done to Major Jacquie Barlow, an OC within ITC Catterick, who has successfully completed her attempt to run 61 half marathons back-to-back over 61 days. Major Barlow took on this gruelling challenge with the aim of raising £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after both she and her family received help from the charity when she had a tumour in 2011. She also raised money for a local school. Macmillan Cancer Support provides vital physical, financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families at a time where the NHS is stretched. Please help to support Major Barlow and Macmillan by donating to her Just Giving page here: #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
‘STRIKE’ is a new concept in the British Army and with it, 1 Regiment RLC has faced a new challenge - how to remain agile and mobile, yet maintain C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence) with a reduced logistical footprint. 1 Regiment RLC has met this test turning to innovation with the aim of being constantly mobile yet able to maintain several lines of communication over vast distances. One possible solution is the MECC from Weatherhaven - a custom off the shelf (COTS) capability that will enhance the ‘just in time’ logistics on the modern battlefield. For more information about this potential capability, please contact Captain Alan Mcallister, RSO 1 Regiment RLC: ... See MoreSee Less
