The London Regiment

The London Regiment is the only Army Reserve Regiment in the Guards Division and provides infantry soldiers to reinforce the five regiments of Foot Guards on operations.

It is the only Army Reserve Infantry Regiment based in London and recruits from the Greater London area. Over the last decade it has maintained an unbroken presence on British military operations.

More than 420 London Regiment soldiers have deployed to Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Croatia, Iraq and Afghanistan. We are about to start training for deployment on a United Nations Tour to Cyprus in 2014.

The first London Regiment was raised in 1908 with 26 battalions, increasing to 92 battalions during the First World War, making it the largest regiment in the British Army and the size of the Army today.

Disbanded during the 1930s, the re-formed London Regiment remains unique as each rifle company wears the cap badge of its antecedent or affiliated Regiment - Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, London Scottish and London Irish Rifles. We are the only Army Reserve Infantry Regiment that is part of the Guards Division.

We have something to offer everyone - whether that's the challenge of staying physically fit, increasing leadership skills, developing great communication skills or deploying on demanding operational tours around the world.

We recruit from across the Greater London area with bases in Balham, Camberwell, Clapham, Edgware and Westminster as well as outstations in Blackheath, Catford, Kensington and Hornsey.
