101 Logistic Brigade

The Iron Viper supporting the Iron Division

101 Logistic Brigade is to be prepared to deploy trained force elements, including the Brigade Headquarters, world-wide, within Readiness to Deploy in order to support the UK's military contribution to a national, NATO or multi-national force.


Our Role

The role of HQ 101 Logistic Brigade in war is to receive both troops and equipment into the theatre of operations, organise their forward movement to the battle area along a line of communication of up to 750 km, then logistically sustain the fighting formations and finally redeploy the force back to the UK base or on to subsequent operations.

The Brigade would also be responsible for the setting up of field hospitals and evacuation of casualties from theatre. This description understates the role, which involves complex logistic processes and requires a detailed plan for ammunition fuel, transport, prisoners of war, humanitarian assistance, rear area security and medical operations.
