168 Pioneer Regiment
Soldiers first and tradesmen a close second, it's a busy life in 168 Pioneer Regiment RLC. Headquartered in Grantham, Lincolnshire, where we have two National Army Reserve squadrons, we also have two Regional Army Reserve squadrons in the North East, located in Middlesbrough and Cramlington.
Working closely with our Regular Army counterparts, 23 Pioneer Regiment RLC, we train to the same standards of fitness and military skills as Infantry Soldiers because we are right with them in the thick of the operational tempo.
On operations this could range from guarding key logistic points including the mobile force protection of combat logistic patrols the 'Road Warriors', placing field defences to prevent attack or repairing the damaged homes of civilians as part of the 'Hearts and Minds' ethos.
We also build and operate Prisoner of War facilities and carry out a wide range of construction work in support of the main battle effort.
We highly value our artisans so if you are already a trained bricklayer, concreter or carpenter we would be delighted to hear from you. Alternatively we will train you to gain qualifications in these trades or enhance the qualifications you already hold. We will also teach you to be a self reliant soldier capable of looking after himself and operating in a wide range of environments.
We are waiting for your call and the chance to open your eyes to a new way of life. Contact us on any of the numbers below to find out more.
