Royal Title Celebrations




















During the Festival of Remembrance, held in the Royal Albert Hall on Sat 13 Nov 10, Her Majesty The Queen graciously approved the ‘Royal’ title for the Army Physical Training Corps.  During what was a very special 150th Anniversary year for the RAPTC [2010] the conferring of the ‘Royal’ title was a tremendous honour and recognises not only the dedication of today's members of the RAPTC, but also those of the former Army Gymnastic Staff (AGS), Army Physical Training Staff (APTS) and Army Physical Training Corps (APTC).

To celebrate the ‘Royal’ title the RAPTC held a Freedom of the Borough of Rushmoor Parade through Aldershot town on 17 Sep 11 . 

The parade was a huge success with over 200 personnel marching, led by the Band of the Royal Logistic Corps.
