Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has a proud record of supporting our Reserve Forces and will this year be celebrating reserves day on June 24th. Reserves Day is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the important part that Reservists play in supporting the UK’s defence capability, making a valuable contribution to the nation over and above their day jobs.
Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve as part of the military.
The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are integral to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas, particularly providing capability in specialist areas such as medical and cyber.
Reservists are currently supporting operations worldwide. However, the contribution they make to our Armed Forces often goes unrecognised.
For more information regarding Reserves Day please contact Jeff Maddison on 01443 444574.
