Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career. CVQO is very proud to have multiple members of staff who are also reservists. One of these is Richard Allen, our Area Manager in the South.
Richard has been a former WO1 in the Regular Army and he now serves as a Sgt in The Band of The Royal Yeomanry based in London, which is a professional part-time symphonic Army Reserve Band who provide musical support to our Armed Forces.
Recently, Richard completed a two-week tour of duty in Gibraltar, supporting the Royal Gibraltar Regt in the Queen’s Birthday Parade, Armed Forces Day and concerts at the Governor’s Residence, Royal Yacht Club, Casemates Square and St Michael’s Cave.
He also completed annual military training tests and had the opportunity to undertake adventurous training in caving and powerboating. Well done, Richard!
