A Company

The Army Reserve has had a presence in Farnham, in Surrey, since its formation in 1908 and the town is home to 3PWRR, A Company’s HQ, Rifle Platoon(s), the Mortar Platoon and is supported by Chefs, Clerks, Drivers, Medics and the Recruit Training Wing.

The Rifle Platoon is now fully equipped with the same weaponry as it Regular Army counterparts including the latest rifle sights and night vision equipment. The Mortar Platoon will be equipped with the potent and combat proven ‘indirect fire’ weapon system, the 81mm Mortar. Personnel posted to this platoon will undertake a range of advance training alongside their Regular counterparts enabling a hard hitting manoeuvre support to the Battalion’s battlefield capability.

The majority of A Company’s Officers and Soldiers are from Surrey and Hampshire. The Company also enjoys an excellent relationship with the local authorities, businesses and community as a whole and as part of the Battalion conducted Freedom Marches through Godalming and Guildford.

Supporting the Regulars

The Army Reserve plays a crucial role in supporting the Regular Army on Operational Tours and other deployments aboard. A Company has continued the strong tradition associated with the area deploying personnel to Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Kosovo and of course most recently to Afghanistan and Iraq.

However it is not all work at A Company; a healthy social life exists and for those interested the opportunity to take part in various sports and adventurous training is greatly encouraged. Within the last few years this has included High Altitude Trekking in Nepal, Scuba Diving in Cyprus and Skiing in the Alps.
