UK Special Forces (Reserve)


At the heart of United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve are physically and mentally robust and resilient individuals who have the confidence, courage and skill to operate individually or in small teams, often in isolation and in a hostile environment.

United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve is comprised of 21 Special Air Service (Reserve), 23 Special Air Service (Reserve), Special Boat Squadron (Reserve) and 63 (UKSF) Signal Squadron (Reserve). It is tasked to the highest level and can operate in difficult and often changing circumstances, sometimes in absence of guidance and within situations that have significant operational and strategic importance.

The kind of individuals required to operate successfully in these circumstances are not found in abundance. The selection process for entry into United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve seeks to identify the qualities and potential of those suitable for service.
