The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment
The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR), the infantry regiment of choice for the South-East of England.
The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR) known as ‘The Tigers’ is made up of a Regimental Headquarters, three battalions and a Reserve company:
- 1 PWRR - a Regular battalion currently based in Germany
- 2 PWRR - a Regular battalion currently based in Cyprus
- 3 PWRR - a Reserve battalion based across the South East of England
- B (Queen's) Company The London Regiment, based in Edgware and Hornsey
Our soldiers come from the South-East of England including London, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex, The Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. As an infantry regiment, we are both fully armoured in Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicles (1 PWRR), trained in dismounted close combat or fighting on foot (2 PWRR) and we are at the forefront of the Army Reserves equipped with the very latest equipment (3 PWRR).
The Tigers embody the virtues of courage, self- discipline and loyalty. We’ve been in every major conflict since the second world war and we are one of the most decorated Regiments for gallantry in the British Army. We have been awarded 57 Victoria Crosses (the nation’s highest award for conspicuous gallantry), one of which was won in Iraq by Sgt Johnson Beharry, who is still serving in the Regiment.
