The Regiment can trace its origins back to 1937 as part of the UK’s 1st Armoured Division. After extensive action during WWII the Regiment was initially based in Verden, Niedersaxon, Germany before settling in Herford, Nord Rhine Westphalia, Germany. On formally separating from the Divisional Headquarters in its close support role in 2016, the Regiment was given permission to continue to use the Rhino as its Regimental insignia which it still wears with pride today.
