62 Reserve Field Communications and Information Services Company
Who are we?
We are the 62 Reserve Field Communications & Information Services (CIS)
Company of the Reserve Defence Force of the Irish Defence Forces. We provide
voice and data communications to units of the 2 Eastern Brigade Reserve in
support of exercises, competitions and ceremonial occasions
In 1941 the 11 Communications Battalion of the LDF was formed as part of
Irelands response to the Second World War. At the end of the war the LDF was
disbanded and replaced by the FCA resulting in the formation of the 11 Field
Signal Company on 1st April 1946. In 1998 the unit name changed to 11 Field CIS
Company. Most recently the reorganisation of the FCA into the RDF in 2005
resulted in the unit being renamed the 62 Reserve Field CIS Company.
Due to the current embargo on Public Service recruitment enlistment in the
RDF is very limited. We are still accepting applications and hope to be able to
take on a small number of new recruits early in 2011
