Where we are and what we do

What we are:

The Rifles is the most modern and exciting Regiment at the heart of the infantry action. Regimental Headquarters is located in Winchester and it coordinates the activity of the five pillars of our Regiment (http://the-bugle.co.uk/):

Our five Regular Battalions
Our three Reserve Battalions
Our cap-badged Cadets
Our Veterans, Associations and Clubs
Our Families and the Communities from which we draw our Riflemen

Belonging to such a highly regarded Regiment, it is a special point of pride to say: "I am a Rifleman".

What we offer:

Officers and soldiers alike within The Rifles are called Riflemen: selected and renown for their forward-looking attitude; inclusive, informal and professional approach; and, above all, their expertise on the battlefield. Riflemen draw on a unique history and are distinct from the remainder of the British Army in their outlook, dress, customs and traditions - providing quality people who belong in The Rifles:

Respect Riflemen lead the way into battle and have been shaping the future of the British Army for generations.
Independence Riflemen are well-paid, enjoy life and work in battalions where every individual’s ideas really count.
Friends for Life Riflemen belong to a special club and band together into a close-knit brotherhood that lasts forever.
Learning Riflemen receive world-class training, supported all along the way, including driving licences and qualifications.
Excitement Riflemen are often deployed on operations and paid to play sport, go adventurous training and travel the world.
Success Riflemen promote quickly, earning more money and responsibility - and frequently prosper in later life.
