101 Regiment RA
We are a close-knit and thriving Regiment that trains on and deploys with some of the Army's most advanced artillery systems. We often exercise overseas and play a full part in operations. However there is more than just military training with members enjoying a range of social, sporting and adventurous training opportunities.
Strike 101 Regiment RA is based in North East England with soldiers in Newcastle, Blyth, South Shields and Leeds. Each location trains with the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS). This is a highly manoeuvrable, tracked and armoured vehicle capable of launching guided rockets out to a range of 70km. Soldiers from the Regiment have used MLRS over the last few years in Afghanistan and also travel to America to train on its missile ranges. You could learn to drive MLRS and perhaps gain enough experience to be put in charge of one of these impressive rocket launchers.
We have other opportunities too. You might decide to become a communications specialist responsible for transmitting target information to the MLRS detachments, or perhaps drive the trucks that keep the rocket launchers supplied with ammunition. We also have vacancies for those who are interested in becoming an army chef, medic, or HR administrator.
If you fancy even more of a challenge, you might consider joining as a Potential Officer. There are tough selection standards and we only take the best, but the training is second to none. It culminates at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where all British Army Officers train.
Whichever you choose, 101 Regiment RA provides all the training you need, including rifle shooting and first aid, as well as the chance to try adventure training around some the great facilities that North East England offers. So whoever you are and whatever your ambition, we can offer fulfilling part-time roles that will stretch and reward you.
