NORTH IRISH REGIMENT
152 (North Irish) Regiment RLC is the only dedicated Bulk Fuel Transport and Storage Regiment in the British Army. Operating a fleet of Close Support Tankers and Unit Supply Tankers, the Regiment has the capability to store and distribute bulk fuel anywhere in the world.
How we are organised
The Regimental Headquarters is located at Palace Barracks, Holywood in Belfast.
The Regiment is organised into four squadrons:
- 211 Tanker Squadron - Londonderry and Coleraine
- 220 Tanker Squadron - Holywood, Belfast
- 227 HQ Squadron - Holywood, Belfast
- 400 Petroleum Operator Squadron - Holywood, Belfast
The Regiment is paired with the Regular Unit 9 Regiment RLC.
What we do
152 Regiment RLC is able to deploy soldiers from Troop strength down to individual crews in order to provide fuel capability to both Regular and Reserve Regiments. Additionally, we are able to provide individual augmentation to formation headquarters, delivering fuel expertise to commanders.
How we do it
The Regiment operates two Bulk Fuel Transportation Platforms and can independently operate fuel installations. A Bulk Fuel Storage Installation has the ability to store 600,000 litres of fuel whilst our Petroleum Laboratory Technicians are able to test and assure fuel quality in austere environments. Our soldiers are trained to drive the Close Support Tanker and the Unit Supply Tanker, as well as being able to operate and maintain the platforms pumping capability.
Who does it
The Regiment employs various trades from across the RLC, including:
We also employ Petroleum Laboratory Technicians and personnel from the Adjutant General’s Corps (AGC-SPS).
Captain A J Donaghue
Since joining 152 (North Irish) Regiment RLC, I have been given every opportunity to develop my leadership ability within the Logistic Command role. Having volunteered for three operational tours with the Royal Logistic Corps, I have gained knowledge, experience and insight into leadership that I would never have gained in my civilian field. Being a Reserve Officer has positivity developed my personality and given me an edge to deliver dynamic, effective solutions in all my interactions in life.
Private K L McHugh
I have been with 152 Regiment RLC for five years and I cannot recommend being in the Army Reserve enough! I have made so many new friends and have gained self-discipline and independence in my everyday life. My next step to develop in my role is to undertake the Close Support Tanker Course (CST) so that I can drive the CST! I definitely made the right decision in joining the British Army and I feel extremely proud to be part of the 152 team and the RLC.
152 Regiment RLC are the current Army Reserve Operational Shooting Champions (2019). All eight firers from the team were placed in the Army Reserve Top 50 (this is only the second time this has been achieved in Army history), with one of our soldiers also being awarded the Queen’s Medal as the best shot in the Army Reserve.
