We are The Royal Yorkshire Regiment. Brave and decisive, with over 330 years of history behind us and driven by a relentless will to succeed in everything we do: harnessing battle-winning innovation for the Army of tomorrow; and providing a highly deployable force to train and fight alongside allies and partner nations across the world, today. Ready for anything, anytime, anywhere – County-Proud. Combat-Ready
Under the British Army’s ‘Future Soldier’ programme 1 RYORKS have re-roled from Armoured to Light-Mechanised Infantry and are now subordinated to the 7th Light Mechanised Brigade Combat Team, The Desert Rats. 1 RYORKS will remain in Catterick but as one of three Light Mechanised Infantry battalions which will rotate through Cyprus. 4 RYORKS will be paired with 1 RYORKS, remain in York and are now subordinated to the newly formed 19th Brigade.
After their summer return to Chester, 2 RYORKS now form the nucleus of the Experimentation and Trials Group alongside existing specialist trials and development units. 2 RYORKS will subsequently move to a permanent home in Warminster in 2024.
Together: ‘The most lethal infantry regiment in the British Army’
