210 (Sutton) Transport Squadron is part of 151 Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps, London's only Army Reserve transport and logistic unit.

HISTORY

210 Squadron was formed in 1967 from Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) units of 56th London Division, 44th Home Counties Division and 559 Company. These Divisions have longer histories dating back to the formation of the Territorial Force in 1908. On formation in 1967 the Squadrons original role was as an Ambulance Squadron. Over this period the Squadron was based in Redhill with out stations in Clapham and Croydon. The sub unit latterly moved in 1992 to its current location in Stonecot Hill in the London Borough of Sutton. Over the years, the Squadron reverted back to a more traditional transport role using DROPS MMLC and now the new MAN Support Vehicle fleet of trucks. In 2008 the Squadron hosted the Princess Royal in the opening of their new TA Centre in Sutton. The unit has participated in the various campaigns of the Great War, the Second World War and recently on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
