The newly formed 152 Field Company is based in Redford Cavalry Barracks, Edinburgh, Army Reserve Centre. The centre contains a well equipped trade training area, gymnasium facilities, a Junior Ranks Club and the Sergeants, Warrant Officers and Officers mess which enable those that have worked hard to relax and socialise.

Our people

As a member of 152 Field Company you will be trained and practiced in individual and team skills which will prepare you for a rewarding career as a member of the REME Reserve. Many of these skills will be transferrable to vocational trades and easily recognisable to the many supportive employers across the Battalion Area of Operations.

In addition to gaining the qualification of trained soldier status, we will bring out your command, leadership and communication skills, while managing your chosen military trade training through a progressive career path. There are many opportunities for REME Reserve to serve with their regular army colleagues on operations and exercises across the globe.
