Change of Command at 6 Regiment Army Air Corps

Lt Col Alice Archer took over command of 6 Regiment Army Air Corps from Lt Col Andrew Bushby at the end of the summer. It was a busy time for the Reserve Regiment; serving members were returning from an Adventurous Training Expedition in Germany, as well as deploying across the country for their Annual Continuous Training camp. The Regiment also had troops mobilised in support of the Border Force strikes, as well as detachments to the Apache Force and deploying to Australia and around the UK.

Lt Col Archer says of her Command: “I am delighted to be returning to 6 Regt AAC as the Commanding Officer. It’s a privilege to be working with such a diverse, highly motivated team”.     

Lt Col Archer joined the Reserve Army Air Corps unit in 2014 after serving for 9 years in the Regular Force with the Royal Signals. With roles in Air Support, UK Contingency Operations, Australian Forces Command and deploying to Iraq as part of the Joint Helicopter Force during her regular career, joining the reserves meant that Lt Col Archer was able to complete the Aviation Support Officer training. Further postings to Command the Senior Division of Exeter University Officer Training Corps and Staff College before delivering the Reserves Leadership Development Program at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. More recently, Lt Col Archer has completed a tour with the Aviation Warfare Branch and Joint Helicopter Command.
