INNSWORTH, UK - Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal visited the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps Support Battalion at Imjin Barracks, Innsworth, UK June 4, 2018.
The visit coincided with the 25th anniversary of both the ARRC Support Battalion's activation and formation of the Royal Logistic Corps.
During the visit HRH The Princess Royal met with Gurkha soldiers and families, opened the Gurkha's new messing hut and met with ARRC Support Battalion staff and leadership. As Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Logistic Corps, she highlighted the unique composition of the battalion while visiting with those assembled.
"This is a very unique battalion and a very unique establishment here," The Princess Royal said. "The ARRC has a very distinct role and your place in it is unusual for all the cap badges involved; there is a much wider range of cap badges here than possibly anywhere else in the Army."
She also added by saying, "So, an unusual experience, but I hope that you all feel you can really make a contribution through the ARRC in a way that no other battalion really quite does."
