Southend Army Reserve Centre has brand new signs installed to coincide with the change of name and rebranding for The Territorial Army (TA).
Southend Army Reserve Centre, located at 153 East Street, had the new signage installed recently which features a brand new design and a striking red colour. The Centre is base to Royal Engineers, 3 Troop 217 Field Squadron (EOD).
This rebranding is a new era for the Army Reserve Centre and is one of the most significant changes in the 100 year history of the formerly known Territorial Army.
Southend Army Reserve Centre is one 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.
The Army Reserves are now recruiting. 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 to 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.
