AMBITION IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS
3 PWRR is one of our Army Reserve Battalions. Our Battalion is based across the Southeast of England with company locations in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
We have a proud history of achievements that include recent operational experience in Afghanistan and Iraq in support of the Regular Army as well as in Cyprus supporting the United Nations mission.
3 PWRR are currently ‘paired’ with 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment as part of the restructured Army under the Army 2020 concept. Thus, we are now on the cutting edge of Army Reserve units with the very latest kit available across the Battalion.
The Battalion also boasts a fine Regimental Band and Corps of Drums based at its Headquarters in Canterbury.
Officers and Soldiers of the Battalion take time away from their normal civilian employment to train every Wednesday evening and one to two weekends each month.
There is also a two week training period conducted annually that can take place either in the United Kingdom or abroad, previous trips have included large battalion exercises in Spain and Estonia, the Battalion has also taken part in Exercise NORTHERN STRIKE in Michigan, USA .
WHAT IS AN ARMY RESERVE SOLDIER?
Army Reserve soldiers come from all walks of life and work part-time as soldiers for the British Army alongside full-time Regular soldiers.
When you join the Army Reserve as a soldier, you'll get involved in everything that the Regular Army does - from combat, to peacekeeping and humanitarian work.
You'll be given the opportunity to learn trade skills, and can take advantage of the opportunities that Regular soldiers have too - like adventurous training.
