Jersey Field Squadron

​​Jersey Field Squadron background and r​ecent postings

Parish and Island militias gave service to the Crown until 1945, when the unit was disbanded. The Royal Militia reformed as the Jersey Field Squadron in 1988.

The forming and operation of the Squadron fulfils Jersey’s defence contribution in line with the 1987 Inter-Governmental Agreement.

As a Royal Engineer subunit, the Jersey Field Squadron:

  • prepares for warfighting in support of 3 UK Division
  • provides individual augmentees for operations other than warfighting
  • is involved locally in community projects
  • supports the civil power in homeland resilience and emergencies when needed

Field Squadron members have supported operations in:

  • Iraq
  • Afghanistan
  • Cyprus
  • Estonia

They continue to support the Regular Army with recent deployments to Belize and UK exercises.

Squadron training and dates

The Jersey Field Squadron need to complete various training events throughout each year to maintain readiness for operations.

All military training is carried out on land by virtue of a licence from a private landowner. The landowner can be a:

  • private person
  • public body
  • public company

Respecting that all land has an owner, it also includes common land or land subject to open access rights.

We have regular training on Wednesday evenings. You may see and hear Squadron personnel conducting training in various locations on the following dates. This training can include the safe use of blank ammunition and pyrotechnics.

Contact us if you have questions about our training.
