Regimental history

Twinned with 158 Regiment and 159 Regiment, 7 Regiment The Royal Logistic Corps has a very long and proud history; elements of the regiment date back to the 1800s, in particular 9 Squadron (formed in 1870) and 16 and 17 squadrons (formed in 1878), and have served in most major theatres.

After the Second World War in 1948 the regiment had under its command a Polish Mixed Service Organisation Squadron made up of Polish soldiers. They were disbanded in 1987 yet the regiment continues to proudly fly the Polish Eagle as its emblem and has a strong affiliation with a Polish Logistic Regiment.

On formation of the Royal Logistic Corps in 1993 the regiment moved to Bielefeld, and as part of the Germany drawdown moved to Cottesmore in 2013. Comprised of three squadrons; 617 Headquarters Squadron, 9 Fuel and General Transport Squadron and 68 Squadron, along with a Light Aid Detachment.
