Reserve Stories

"Beginners with little experience of skiing embraced the challenge of attempting a completely new activity, practicing their snowplough turns and demonstrating great commitment on the green slopes, helping each other up when the falls naturally occurred, ready to go again."

"I love working with other services, and often in a multinational environment.  Being a reservist has given me access to top-level sports events e.g. a sailing expedition to Croatia and frequent attendance at the RN Winter Sports Championships where I represented my unit and the RNR."

"My reservist role involves leadership, strategic planning, and dealing with unplanned events. The skills I have gained both at home and overseas allow me to step back, review a situation and make decisions even under pressure."
