As part of our commitment to supporting the Armed Forces, we are proud to celebrate Reserves Day today, 23rd June 2021.
Making up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel, our reservist are integral to protecting the nation’s security not only here at home but also supporting operations worldwide, giving up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces balancing the demands of a military career with civilian life. Not only do they provide boots-on-the-ground, but they also provide vital capabilities in specialist areas such as medical and cyber security.
Reservists are from all walks of life and work in all sectors; you may be sitting next to a reservist at work but not know it! So on Reserves Day, Reservists wear their uniform in their civilian life – if you see a colleague in uniform go over and have a chat and ask how you can get involved.
