The 4th Battalion is the Army Reserve Battalion of The Mercian Regiment.

Our officers and soldiers come from all areas of society and from a variety of professions and occupations but they all come together to serve with a professional and disciplined approach to whatever role they are required to undertake.

We deploy as either a formed Company or as Individual Replacements, where a soldier goes to a Regular unit and is put into a platoon to work alongside Regular soldiers. We pride ourselves on our commitment and have sent more soldiers on operations than any other Army Reserve unit.

We have Army Reserve centres across the region. If you are interested in joining or just looking for information about our role, background and traditions, then find out more by clicking on your nearest centre on the map.

4 MERCIAN covers a large part of central England and has 10 Army Reserve Centres. The jobs available are sometimes limited by location, but all our centres offer a variety of jobs to meet everyone's skills.
