The Armed Forces community is made up of:
the bereaved: the immediate family of Service Personnel and ex-Service Personnel who have died, whether or not that death has any connection with service.
Rutland has a rich military heritage, our two barracks were previously RAF Camps dating back to the 1930s, and many Forces personnel and their families decided to make Rutland their permanent home. As a result, we have a significant and varied veteran population of over 5,000, one of the largest in the UK as a percentage of our population.
The units that we have been / are home to over recent years are;
7 Regiment Royal logistics Corps
2nd Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment
The Royal Anglian Regiment
The Royal Army Veterinary Corps, 1st Military Working Dog Regiment
Rutland is home to a wide mix of our Armed Forces Community including serving personnel and veterans across the age ranges and their families as evidenced in our Armed Forces survey.
