Royal Engineers – 12 (Force Support) Engineers Group
This affiliation has now been particularly geared to the Royal School of Military Engineering Group. This enables the Joiners and Ceilers Company to specifically support the craft through the school as well as presenting an annual Award to officers and service men or women in the corp. showing exemplary work.
The school is situated at Brompton Barracks, Chatham, Kent and has a variety of workshops, one in particular being a large facility for woodworking. This sits comfortably with the Company’s remit of supporting trainees in the craft, not only by presenting an annual Award for merit but also by offering them the opportunity to enter the Company’s annual competition for cash prizes. Further plans are also being made in support of these trainees who wish to leave the corp. after their term of service.
The Astute-class represents are the largest, most advanced and most powerful attack submarines ever operated by the Royal Navy. They combine world leading sensors, design and weaponry in a modern, versatile vessel.
An important service affiliation with the most modern nuclear submarine and the progenitor of the Astute class of submarines still being constructed. Our relationship extends to presenting awards to crew members for their exemplary work on board and at sea and to a general warm friendship and support with all those serving on board.
241 (Wanstead and Woodford ) Squadron ATC
We support young people with our affiliation with the long-established Air Cadet Training Corps No 241 Squadron. The unit was established in 1941 and the first president was Sir Winston Churchill. The Squadron is sited at Finchingfield Avenue in Woodford and has an enviable reputation as a youth training organisation, which gives young cadets the chance to fly, glide and train to obtain the Duke of Edinburgh award.
