The Regiment's history goes back more than three hundred years. While the full time soldiers are based in Wiltshire, their roots are firmly in Wales.

The 1st Battalion is the Army's lead armoured infantry task force. The 3rd Battalion are reserve soldiers, and both were on the parade ground today.
