3 PWRR is one of two Reserve Battalions of the Regiment. The Battalion is based across the Southeast of England with Company location in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. 3 PWRR has a proud record of achievements that include recent operational experience in Afghanistan and Iraq in support of the Regular Army and Cyprus supporting the United Nations mission.

Candidates for a Commission should be over 17 years and nine months and under 29 years-of-age on the date of entry to Sandhurst. Find out more about a Commission in PWRR here.

Whether you want to join or rejoin as a full-time or part-time infantryman, PWRR offers a unique range of roles and opportunities to acquire skills unmatched by any other infantry regiment.

3PWRR is currently ‘paired’ with 1st Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment, based in Woolwich as part of the restructured Army under Army 2020 concept. As such we are on the cutting edge for Army Reserve units with the very latest kit now available across the Battalion.

The Battalion also boasts a fine Regimental Band based at its HQ in Canterbury.

Officers and Soldiers of the Battalion take time away from their normal civilian employment, to train every Wednesday evening and one to two weekends each month. There is also a two week training period conducted annually and can take place either in the United Kingdom or abroad.

Roles within the Battalion are not just restricted to the Infantry; the Battalion can also employ both male and females in these roles:

• Chefs
• Clerks
• Combat Medics
• Drivers
• Musicians

Life in 3PWRR is not all about training, as with all army units there is a strong sense of family and a keen social life. There are great opportunities for sport and adventurous training too.

3PWRR is currently recruiting. If you are interested in joining contact your nearest Army Reserve Centre and arrange a visit. You should be aged between 18 and 43 and physically fit; the Battalion is particularly interested in Ex-Regular personnel who would like to utilise their skills within the Army Reserve.

Do more, be more, become a TIGER – join 3PWRR.
