New RLC Corps Sergeant Major Reserves

The RLC Reserve units have a new Sergeant Major, WO1 Amanda Ward has taken up the position as Corps Sergeant Major (SM) Reserves.

WO1 Ward joined the Women’s Royal Army Corp and the Army Catering Corps (ACC) in 1986. Upon completion of training, she was posted to the Infantry Battle School, Brecon and then the Cambridge Military Hospital, Aldershot, before leaving the Regular Army and joining the Territorial Army (TA) Central Volunteers Headquarters ACC in 1991.

With the formation of The Royal Logistic Corps’, Catering Support Regiment and subsequent relocation of the regiment to Grantham, her frequent commute from Portsmouth to Grantham commenced.

Remaining with the Catering Support Regiment throughout her career, she supported a variety of exercises in the UK and Germany.

On promotion to WO1 in 2011, she joined 2 Operational Support Group, Labour Support Unit, where she remained for seven years during which she completed two operational tours of Afghanistan.

In 2018, she returned home to 167 Catering Support Regiment as RSM. Although sad to be leaving her family regiment again after only a relatively short return, she is delighted at being selected for the appointment of Corps SM Reserves.

During her career, WO1 Ward has completed various military courses and gained numerous qualifications. She was a Physical Training Instructor for over 17 years. She has completed a BSC (Hons) in Sports Science and an MSc in Maintaining and Enhancing Sporting Performance.

Happily married for over 30 years to Dean – who himself completed a full Regular service and Reserve service, they have two grown sons, Niall and Jordan. Still a keen recreational runner, her other leisure activities include skiing, golf, gardening, reading and walking her dog ‘Archie’.
