Watch this video introduction to The Mercian Regiment.
The First Battalion (1 MERCIAN) takes its heritage from the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment, and still draws most of its soldiers from Cheshire and the Wirral.

The Battalion provides 4 Mechanized Brigade with one of its light role Infantry units. 1 MERCIAN soldiers have to be ready to conduct operations on foot, by vehicle or by helicopter.
