The RLC mounts the Queens Guard

3 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps based at Dalton Barracks in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, has parked up its vehicles for three months for a once in a lifetime opportunity to Guard Her Majesty The Queen’s Royal Palaces and The Crown Jewels.

The prestigious honour, which puts the regiment centre stage at the height of the London tourist season, is in recognition of the 25th anniversary of the Corps which is being celebrated this year.

The men and women in 3 Regiment RLC will change the Queen’s Guard daily with Guardsmen from the Foot Guards until the end of July and then on alternate days in August and September.

Soldiers from the regiment trained for six weeks to learn the complex drill manoeuvres and tasks involved in the ancient but very public, military ceremony.

The soldiers who normally are drivers, suppliers and communications specialists, or chefs for the British Army, are among one of the most demographically diverse units serving today.
