102 Battalion REME

We are 102 Battalion, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers - 'The Northern Craftsmen'. We are the Army Reserve's professional engineers in the North of England and Scotland.

Role of the Battalion

Our role is to provide reserve soldiers and officers to train for, and deploy on, military operations. Members of 102 Battalion have previously deployed in support of the Army's current operations in Afghanistan, Cyprus and the United Kingdom.

102 Battalion also train regularly overseas - as technical tradesmen and engineers - supporting the Army's equipment capability in locations such as Canada, Germany and Kenya. We welcome those with no previous military service as well as ex-regulars.

In return, we offer you challenge and excitement; formal, structured and progressive engineering trade training (contributing to civilian qualifications); soldiering skills; and the opportunity to undergo paid sporting and teambuilding activities - not to mention a great social life? On top of all this, you will develop a justifiable sense of pride in serving your country.
