New Signage for Cambridge Army Reserve Centre

Cambridge Army Reserve Centre have now installed brand new signs to coincide with the change of name and rebranding for The Territorial Army (TA).

With two Army Reserve Centres in Cambridge, both now have the new, eye-catching signage on display. The first is located at Coldhams Lane and is the base for 3 Military Intelligence Battalion and Cambridge University Officers Training Corps. The second Army Reserve Centre on Cherry Hinton Road is home to 254 Medical Regiment and a Royal Marine Reserve Unit. This rebranding is a new era for the unit and one of the most significant changes in the 100 year history of the formerly known Territorial Army.

Installed on Friday 14 February 2014, the new Army Reserve Centres signs feature a brand new design and striking red colour. Cambridge Army Reserve Centres are two of the many centres in the East Anglian area involved in the name change, an exciting prospect which will better reflect the enhanced role of the Reserves and their full integration into the whole force.

With 16 Army Reserve Centres currently located throughout the East Anglian region, the Army Reserve offers the best of both worlds for those who want to experience Army life but do not wish to make a full-time commitment. It is an exciting, challenging and rewarding opportunity and with training and regular exercises the Army Reserve will provide a range of valuable skills to benefit civilian life.

Nationwide, the Army Reserve makes up one quarter of the British Army and reservists routinely work side-by-side with their Regular counterparts. Over the past two decades Reservists have contributed to defensive, humanitarian and peacekeeping operations in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Iraq.
