Army Reserve units

The nation-wide units of the Army Reserve listed in drop-down menus.

Regional units

Most of these units recruit locally; they make up the majority of the Army Reserve and have centres in most areas, so finding one near to you should not be difficult.


National units

National units differ slightly from Regional units in that they recruit from the whole of the UK. They provide highly specialised services and skills and have a 19 day training liability.
