4 PWRR is one of the two Reserve Battalions of the Regiment. The Battalion is based across the counties of Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and London (Middlesex). 4 PWRR formed on the 1st September 2017, building on the success of the Regiment that has a proud record of success and excellence, including operational experience in Afghanistan, Iraq and Cyprus supporting the United Nations’ mission.

4 PWRR is ‘paired’ with both of our regular sister battalions, 1 and 2 PWRR. This gives us an unrivalled opportunity to operate with the light mechanised infantry and armoured infantry roles as part of the Army 2020 concept. We are the cutting edge Army Reserve unit with unrivalled operational opportunities, we have the very latest kit across the Battalion, including support weapons systems.

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

Life in 4 PWRR is not all about training and operations, 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.

4 PWRR is currently expanding and 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 and personnel considering leaving the regular Army, who would like to utilise their skills within the Army Reserve, please speak to your RCMO.

Do more, be more, become a TIGER – Fierce and Proud. Join 4 PWRR.
