The Royal Logistic Corps

154 Regiment RLC

Scotland's Logistic Regiment

154 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps is an Army Reserve Regiment that provides transport support to the British Army. We are the only Logistic Regiment in Scotland and have a number of squadrons across the central belt of the country.  

How we are organised

The Regiment is made up of the following squadrons:

  • 221 Transport Squadron - Glasgow
  • 230 Transport Squadron - Edinburgh
  • 239 Transport Squadron - Fife
  • 251 Transport Squadron - Irvine
  • 527 HQ Squadron - Dunfermline

We are paired with our Regular counterpart 27 Regiment RLC.

What we do

We provide trained personnel to support our paired Regiment (27 Regiment RLC) and the wider Army in conducting operations around the world. The Regiment is part of 101 Logistic Brigade, which sustains the 3rd (United Kingdom) Division.

In recent years, members of the Regiment have deployed to Afghanistan and with the United Nations in Cyprus.

How we do it

Once our personnel have completed their initial training, they are taught how to operate our range of Heavy Goods Vehicles, gaining their Category C+E Driving Licence.

We train at the weekends and over a two-week annual camp where we undertake tactical driver training so that we are ready to deploy on operations.

Who does it

The Regiment employs a wide range of individuals from the local community and we have roles for soldiers across all locations. RLC trades available within the Regiment include:

We also employ Officers who train at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), Combat Medical Technicians and Human Resource Specialists. 

Many members of the Regiment find that the skills they learn in the Army Reserve also enhance their civilian employment.

Second Lieutenant Todd – 221 Transport Squadron, Glasgow

I graduated from University in 2018 and transferred to 154 Regiment RLC from the Glasgow and Strathclyde University Officer Training Corps. As a private soldier, I completed my basic military driver training, gaining my Category C HGV licence in the process. The Regiment fully supported my desire to continue my training and after passing the Army Officer Selection Board, I was able to commission as an officer in November 2019. Working as part of 154 Regiment RLC has provided me with lots of incredible opportunities. As an outdoor enthusiast, I have completed my Rock-Climbing Supervisor course and have run regimental rock-climbing sessions in Cyprus. I have also competed for the Regiment in Alpine skiing competitions. I am excited to begin my role of Troop Commander where I can help support others in achieving as much as they can throughout their Reserve careers.

Lance Corporal Livingstone – 239 Transport Squadron

I initially joined the Army Reserve before deciding to pursue a career in the Regular Army as a craftsman in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME). I served with REME until 1997 when I left and once again joined as a Reserve.

Having re-traded from a driver role, I have recently completed my initial chef qualification where I was lucky enough to be able to cook for Royalty when HRH Princess Anne visited the Regiment in October 2019.

Being an Army Reserve has given me the opportunity to complete numerous trade qualifications which I am now able to use alongside my civilian career as a crane operator.

Sporting Opportunities

154 Regiment RLC is very proud of its sporting prowess within the Corps and across the British Army. Our soldiers are fit, motivated and ready to face any physical challenge.

There are numerous regimental sports that are open to all Reservists, including: football, cross country, orienteering and our very successful Alpine and Nordic skiing. We encourage our soldiers and officers to take part in Adventurous Training in order to develop leadership skills and courage, and many of our soldiers have pushed themselves further than they could have imagined possible before they joined the Regiment.
