The Fusiliers: For England and St George

The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers is a forward thinking, adaptable and professional infantry regiment.

The Fusiliers are a two battalion regiment. The First Battalion is based in Tidworth, equipped with the WARRIOR Armoured Infantry fighting vehicle. The Second Battalion specialises in light role operations and is currently based in Cyprus. Both battalions have the ability to deploy and adapt quickly to any operational scenario.

The Fusiliers have been involved in every major conflict in the last 400 years, but more recently both battalions were heavily involved in Northern Ireland, Iraq (Op TELIC) and Afghanistan (Op HERRICK), with the First Battalion recently returning from Op HERRICK 18.

The Fusiliers are capable of meeting every challenge with courage, determination and have proven their ability to succeed in the tough environment that is modern soldiering. The Regiment has a very strong ethos, a close knit bond and is very proud to be “England’s Finest”. We offer full regular and reserve opportunities and are recruiting now.
