155 (Wessex) Transport Regiment
The origins of our Regiment can be traced back to 1897 and the Boer War, when a transport company was formed to support the deployed force. We have covered a lot of mileage since then as part of the Royal Army Service Corps, the Royal Corps of Transport and now as part of the Royal Logistic Corps.
155 (Wessex) Transport Regiment was disbanded in 1993 but reformed in February 2006 and continues to grow.
Our Headquarters is based in Plymouth, at the very place we were originally formed. We have one transport squadron in Derriford with another in Bodmin, which is supported by a detachment in Truro. We will shortly be establishing a further squadron in Poole.
Our role is to provide a heavy lift capability in support of the Regular Army in peace or in conflict and in addition to prepare soldiers for operational deployment. Whether it is food, water, fuel or combat supplies, if it can be put on the back of a truck, we can move it to wherever it is needed.
In addition to Heavy Goods drivers, we also need and train mechanics, chefs, clerks and a wide range of support personnel all dedicated to keeping the regiment running smoothly. We train to keep ourselves fit in order to perform our role and this can be physically demanding.
We drive a wide range of vehicles and learn to drive in all road and weather conditions. We are all team players who work hard and play hard, but there are plenty of opportunities to let off steam.
Join us for a challenge, new skills, travel, adventure, sport, qualifications and much more. For more information contact your local TA centre.
