RE Corps Enterprises (RECE) was formed as a Limited Company, owned by the Corps of Royal Engineers, in 1994 although it had been in existence in varying forms for many, many years before that. It is primarily run for the benefit of, and as a service to, current serving Soldiers and Officers, retired members of the Corps and their families.
Because RE Corps Enterprises Ltd is owned by the Corps, ALL profits generated by sales are gift aided to the Royal Engineers Central Charitable Trust at the end of each financial year.
RECE currently has two members of staff.
The Manager Jo Barnes and her Assistant Manager Alison Marsh who run both the online shop and the barrack shop.
The RECE business is located in Brompton Barracks, Chatham, which to most people is the historical home of the Corps.
The Office, mail order centre and The Sapper Shop are located in Wood Street Block, the office hours are 09.00 – 16.30 Monday – Friday; the opening hours for the shop are 10.00 – 15.00 Monday to Thursday. 10.00-14.00 Fridays.
The Corps shop has a wide range of attractive gifts and goods for both military and civilian alike; we try to cater for all levels of expenditure and need. If we do not stock a particular item we will always try to obtain it for you, within reason.
