Scullion News & Resources

Reserves Day spotlights the invaluable role part-time Reservists play in securing our nation, seamlessly balancing civilian lives with on-call military service. We celebrate these remarkable individuals’ devotion.

Today, June 21, 2023, we come together to celebrate Reserves Day and recognise the unwavering dedication, professionalism, and commitment of our Reservists in safeguarding our nation’s security, both at home and overseas.

Reserves Day: Acknowledging the Unsung Heroes

Reservists constitute one-sixth of the UK forces, delivering specialised talents in medical, legal, cyber, and more that profoundly strengthen national defence abilities. However, their extraordinary efforts rarely see the spotlight. Hence, Reserves Day is an annual occasion to highlight and honour these overlooked, exceptional contributions.

This Reserves Day, notice comrades around you donning uniforms amidst regular routines. These brave souls likely serve secretly as colleagues, friends, or family. Let’s extend gratitude to those quiet heroes.

We have the privilege of having two extraordinary reservists who display true dedication. Marketing Manager Sarah Fishwick serves in the Royal Navy Reserves. Senior Solicitor Stephanie Grieve acts as Army Second Lieutenant. This Reserves Day, Stephanie honoured her service by appearing in court and successfully defending a client in full military uniform. Her journey blends the military and legal worlds seamlessly.
