ARMY reservists in Dunfermline enjoyed a royal appointment this week during a visit from HRH The Princess Royal.

In her capacity as Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC), she visited the headquarters of the 154 Scottish Regiment RLC – Scotland’s only Army logistics unit – in Elgin Street, where she met reserve and regular personnel, MoD (Ministry of Defence) civil servants and their families.

All trades from 154 Regiment’s wide range of roles were demonstrated to the Princess, from the squadrons which make up the regiment – one of which is based in Dunfermline – as well as a performance from their pipers, a display of silverware won by their ski teams, and a showcase of the military skills soldiers are taught, in addition to their trades.

After a brief from the Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Justin Yates, Princess Anne toured a number of display stands in the drill hall and received flowers from 17-year-old Jahmelie Poole, daughter of Regimental Sergeant Major, Warrant Officer Class 1 Karl Poole.

Trades in the RLC, the biggest corps in the British Army, include HGV driver specialists, chefs, port workers, supply specialists and explosive ordnance disposal experts.
