The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR) is England’s senior infantry regiment. Known as The Army Tigers, the Regiment is made up of 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 Company (Queen’s) The London Regiment, based in Edgware and Hornsey
Our soldiers come from the South-East of England including London, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Middlesex, The Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.
Army Tigers embody the virtues of courage, self-discipline and loyalty.
Soldiers from The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment have been in every major conflict since the Second World War and are one of the most decorated regiments for gallantry in the British Army. These include 57 Victoria Crosses (the nation’s highest award for conspicuous gallantry), one of which was won in Iraq by Sgt Johnson Beharry, who is one of only two serving VC holders in the British Army.
The Army Tigers don’t live in the past, we learn from it so that we can deal effectively with the future.
