3rd Bn PWRR, Army Reserve Battalion
3 PWRR is the Army Reserve Battalion of the Regiment. The Battalion is based across the Southeast of England with Company location in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. 3 PWRR has a proud record of achievements that include recent operational experience in Afghanistan and Iraq in support of the Regular Army and Cyprus supporting the United Nations mission.
3 PWRR is currently ‘paired’ with 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, based in Woolwich, as part of the restructured Army under Army 2020 concept. As such they are on the cutting edge of Army Reserve units with the very latest kit now 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, including a large battalion exercise in Spain in 2015, Estonia in 2016 and will see the Battalion taking part in Exercise NORTHERN STRIKE in Michigan USA in 2017.
