Remembrance Day with the TA

Monday, November 12, 2012

Following the annual Remembrance service in Sheffield this weekend Meg Munn MP attended the Territorial Army’s Sunday lunch at Manor Top Centre situated in her constituency. The centre is home to the 38 (Strategic Communications) Signal Regiment (Volunteers).

This TA unit’s role involves providing Information Communication Systems to the emergency services and local government in an emergency. In recent years the Brigade has supported the response to the floods, foot and mouth and the fuel crisis. In they also support operations with the regular army. The Manor Top Centre is also home to other units, including 46 (Hallamshire) Support Signal Squadron (Volunteers), which includes systems engineers, vehicle electricians, mechanics and drivers.

Meg commented:

“It is always an honour to meet the TA members at Manor Top who give their spare time and energy to train throughout the year. They offer tremendous support for the regular army, as well as providing vital support for local communities during major incidents.

The government have just proposed a number of changes to the TA, including the idea of changing their name. I’ll be talking to the local volunteers over the coming weeks to better understand what these proposals might mean for them.”

On 8th November the government announced a consultation on the future of reserve forces. The consultation, ’Future Reserves 2020: Delivering the Nation’s Security Together’, proposes more training for reservists, a ’kitemark-type’ award for supportive employers, and the idea of changing the Territorial Army’s name to reflect their enhanced role.
