These pages are designed to give you a flavour of life with the regiment, to tell you a little of our history dating back to 1678, our kit and some of the opportunities available. The regiment is currently based in North Germany, part of the 7th Armoured Brigade - The Desert Rats, and is equipped with the fearsome Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank.
The Regiment has previously deployed to Afghanistan as part of 7th Armoured Brigade's support to 3 Commando Brigade. SCOTS DG are fielding one squadron on WARTHOG armoured vehicles, one in a dismounted role and a further squadron to train the Afghan National Army, which varied roles prove the adaptability of the Royal Armoured Corps soldier on contemporary operations.
Operation HERRICK 14 is the latest in a long line of operational deployments for the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, and her antecedent regiments. Upon their return, the Regiment marched through cities in Scotland, as part of a homecoming parade, before returning to training on their core vehicle, the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank.
The world famous Pipes and Drums also feature heavily on these pages. The band has in recent years recorded several albums.
Their latest album, Spirit of the Glen - Journey won the Classical Album of the Year at the Brit Awards this year - the first time a military band has achieved such an accolade.
