161 Ambulance Regiment RLC (V) was disbanded under the Strategic Defence Review in 2002. The bulk of the unit's soldiers were transferred to other Specialist RLC units. The responsibility of the regiment was transferred to RAMC.

161 Ambulance Regiment comprised of:

  • 290 Amb Sqn
  • 291 Amb Sqn
  • 292 Amb Sqn

This unit was responsible for the destruction of several Crimean War lances on several occasions either through accident or trying to remove apples off of a victim's head ala William Tell, whilst almost skewering a member of the MPGS in the process.
