The Yorkshire Regiment

The Yorkshire regiment is the infantry regiment of choice in Yorkshire, with two Regular battalions and one Reserve battalion that are fully manned and highly regarded for their operational and sporting achievements, all supported by a strong and cohesive Regimental family - One County, One Regiment, Our Family.

Who we are

The Yorkshire Regiment was created in 2006 from an amalgamation of three famous northern regiments with over three centuries of history behind us.  The heritage and tradition of these fine regiments continues to be borne with pride and has inspired today’s regiment to be at the pinnacle of operational and sporting excellence within the British Army.  With two regular and one reserve battalion, we offer exceptional opportunities and variety to our young officers and soldiers.

The 1st Battalion, based in Warminster, is equipped with the WARRIOR Armoured Fighting Vehicle and are experts in mounted, close-combat.  The 2nd Battalion at Catterick, is equipped with the FOXHOUND Protected Patrol Vehicle and are experts in dismounted, close-combat.  The 4th Battalion is located throughout Yorkshire and Teesside and is our Army Reserve unit, trained in the light infantry role and fully prepared to mobilise alongside their Regular Army counterparts. 

All proud to be Yorkshire’s Warriors
