The Tigers are a fighting Regiment – we thrive and deliver excellence on complex, tough operations. We are forward looking, yet fiercely proud of our famous forebear Regiments whose fighting spirit, values and traditions thrive in today’s Regiment.
We train hard to fight hard, and pride ourselves on our courage under fire. We are a tight-knit Regiment that invests in our people and rewards merit. Self-confident yet modest, we are inclusive and genuinely welcoming to others – developing real bonds of friendship that stand the test of time and conflict.
Tigers have two aims: To succeed in any mission set them and stand by our mates whatever happens. Once a Tiger, always a Tiger. – Fierce Pride.
The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR) known as ‘The Tigers’ is made up of a Regimental Headquarters, three battalions and a Reserve company:
Our soldiers come from the South-East of England including London, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex, The Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. As an infantry regiment, we are both fully armoured in Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicles (1 PWRR), trained in dismounted close combat or fighting on foot (2 PWRR) and we are at the forefront of the Army Reserves equipped with the very latest equipment (3 PWRR).
The Tigers embody the virtues of courage, self- discipline and loyalty. We’ve been in every major conflict since the second world war and we are one of the most decorated Regiments for gallantry in the British Army. We have been awarded 57 Victoria Crosses (the nation’s highest award for conspicuous gallantry), one of which was won in Iraq by Sgt Johnson Beharry, who is still serving in the Regiment.
