Reserve Forces and Cadets Association
for North of England


Reservists are ordinary men and women from all walks of life with a wide range of professions, skills and trades; they usually train one night a week and one or two weekends a month. In addition, Reservists are required to attend an annual two-week course, camp or training exercise.

This is, however, not set in stone and absence from training is permitted should personal circumstances demand it and provided that the individual fulfils their minimum commitment throughout the year. However, conversely, there are also many opportunities for additional training of both a military and sporting nature for those who want them, both in the UK and aboard.
