About this event

Come along to our first joint event with the Institution of Royal Engineers for a couple of years. 23 Parachute Engineer Regiment shall be hosting this event at the Rock Barracks in Suffolk.

23 Parachute Engineer Regiment provide the dedicated engineer support to 16 Air Assault Brigade which specialises in the opposed seizure of airfields to enable strategic theatre entry.

Fundamental to this concept is the employment and deployment of engineer capability to complete the identification, reconnaissance, improvement and maintenance of adequate aircraft operating surfaces to allow the build up of combat power.

This meeting, through the lens of the Royal Engineers directly supporting the Air Assault Task Force, shall present the technical and tactical engineering challenges involved with achieving the required standard of aircraft operating surfaces at reach and over long lines of communication.

Events with the Royal Engineers have always been popular in the past, particularly because of the delicious curry, and places are limited so book soon to avoid disappointment.
