155 Transport Regiment RLC (V) 43 Wessex BDE

#1
Can anyone give me any info on this unit? I heard a rumour that it is being expanded to include 2 new squadrons in Plymouth and Bodmin.
Im an ex regular driver RCT/RLC and im thinking of joining the Plymouth based squadron.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

If you pm Coax-on or Gunner REMF they should be able to tell you the info you require. Shall we say they are in the know about such things!
I knew there was a Sqn forming in Cornwall, but I thought it was going to based out of Truro. Could be wrong?
I think you're right about the Plymouth Sqn, I seem to remember the conversation about the need to have 383 Pet Troop based there if there's going to be a Tpt Regt in same location?
All the best.

Cheers for that mate..

383 cdo pet troop are already in Plymouth..the info i got on 155 was that they were to be a drops troop as i was told i would be able to go back to my old role. Also they wouldnt be active until early next year.

I just wondered if there was any truth in this.

Ill do a bit more digging!

Hi
155 is the reincarnation (as the result of FAS) of the Wessex Transport Regt that was disbanded some time ago. Currently it has only 1 Sqn based in Bodmin, Cornwall. The remainder of the Regiment is due to form up in Apr 09 and will have an HQ and Tpt Sqn in Plymouth and a further Sqn in Poole (Det Dorchester) providing someone can find the money to get them in. If you can train from Bodmin give them a bell 01208 72467.
