C Detachment

C Detachment has a small headquarters in Plymouth, situated on the second floor of the Army Reserve Centre, based at Derriford (within a stones through of the Hospital).

The Headquarters team are responsible for administering the Units officers and soldiers, encompassing predominantly doctor’s, nurses, health care professionals and support staff (including chefs, clerks and drivers to name a few) all of which are effectively recruited from organisations within the surrounding area of Devon and Cornwall.

The central office is based in Plymouth, but a second administrative hub (although not manned) is based in Truro. All enquiries should be fielded through the telephone number as listed above for C Det.

We are actively recruiting officers and soldiers and in particular more so recently, in line with the draw down of the Regular Army as reported in the news and press. Training for the reserve force is exactly the same as that of their regular counterparts; in fact it is delivered within the same training establishments for all services.

To ensure the Army maintain clinical and military standards, all Army Reserve Units have a cadre of Regular Army personnel devoted to such training and its delivery. The administration staff at Derriford work Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm and welcome all manner of enquiries, irrespective of whether individuals are looking to join the Regular or Reserve Army.

Although very professional in our approach, we are a friendly bunch who enjoy a chat over a cuppa! Please feel free to contact us on 01752 704247.
