The Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia) (R MON RE(M)) is the most senior regiment in the British Army Reserve, having given continuous loyal service to the crown since 1539. It is part of the reserve forces, and is the only remaining Militia unit in the British Army.
The regiment is also unusual in having the word Royal appear twice in its name. It gained the first "Royal" in 1804 when it was known as the Monmouth and Brecon Militia. The second was acquired in 1877 when the regiment transferred from an infantry unit into a Special Reserve section of the expanding Royal Engineers.
- 108 (Welsh) Field Squadron (Militia) based in Swansea.
Following the reorganisation under Army 2020(Refine), the regiment is now under the command of 25 (Close Support) Engineer Groupbased at Bulford. The regiment trains alongside the Tidworth and Germany based regular regiments of 25 (Close Support) Engineer Group (22, 26 & 35 Engr Regts). In turn, 12 (FS) Engr Gp is currently part of 8 Engineer Brigade.
