What we


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’
