Archives & Library

Due to relocation of the museum, The RLC Museum archive and library is closed. The online archive can still be accessed.

The RLC Museum online archive provides access to a wealth of digitised Corps Journals, enlistments books, diaries, photographs and vehicle records. Often a great deal of information can be found here to assist with your enquiry.

Unfortunately due to the move of the museum to Winchester, the archive and library are currently closed to the visiting public and therefore the archival staff are not able to assist with research enquiries until after the move.

WW1 Service records that survive are available from the National Archive.

Service records for a solider whose service ended after 1921 are available from the MOD.

In 2021 the new archive, reading room and library will be fully open to the public, with extensive research facilities, copying and high resolution scanning equipment being made available.

An excellent on-line archive is available at the RLC Digital Archive via the button below.

The Royal Logistic Corps

On Wednesday 14 October, The RLC Individual and Team Orienteering Championships took place on Mytchett Training Area. 115 competitors from 27 units took on a score event in which individuals had one hour to reach as many of the 24 checkpoints as possible. The four team members who score the highest points count towards the team result, where teams tie on points, the team with the fastest time to score those points wins.

Congratulations to all who were involved and well done to 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood who were the champion male team, 162 Regiment RLC who were the champion female team and Army Drivers Northern Ireland (152 Regiment RLC) the champion Reserve team.

Lieutenant Huw Stradling was the overall winner, closely followed by Major Richard Barrett in second and Captain Terry Furlong took third place. Major Sophie Spenser-Small was the female winner with Lieutenant Colonel S Braine and Colonel Lucy Giles hot on her heels.
