26th Regiment Royal Artillery

26th Regimental Royal Artillery

26th Regiment Royal Artillery

Was formed as a distinct unit in only relatively modern times. It was not until 1947 that 26 Regiment was formed from 4th Field Artillery Brigade, re-uniting batteries which had served together in various forms and under various titles for many years. 26 Regiment RA is in fact unique in the Gunners for being the only Regiment to have kept its 3 original gun batteries (17, 16 and 159). The histories of each of the individual batteries are therefore worth covering in a little more detail (selecting a Battery emblem above), but the modern story of the Regiment is no less exciting. Since 1947 either all or large elements of 26 Regiment RA have served in Egypt, Cyprus, Hong Kong, UK, Northern Ireland, Belize, Germany, The Gulf, Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq.

The Regiment is one of five self propelled gun regiments in the British Army and are currently based in Gutersloh, Germany, and equiped with the AS90 Self Propeled Gun.

The Regiment is the West Midland Gunners, the vast majority of soldiers within the Regiment are from the West MIdlands which gives it a very strong sense of unity.

The Light Dragoons

The Light Dragoons

The 13th/18th Royal Hussars and the 15th/19th King’s Royal Hussars, as they were then known, chose to amalgamate with one another since they shared much history and recruited from the north of England. And so, in December 1992,The Light Dragoons were formed. Or perhaps we should say reformed, since the new name harked back to the original light dragoons. The Princess of Wales became their first colonel in chief. Almost immediately, the new regiment began a long series of operational deployments in the Balkans, prompting a former chief of defence staff to describe them as the best regiment in the army – “consistently the best officered, best recruited and the most effective.”

The “Y” Service. Who maintain a constant silent watch on the enemies of their country. Their past and continuing contribution to Britain’s operational success in peace and war can never be told in full.

The Regiment had its beginnings at Aldershot in 1934 as a small independent War Office controlled unit known as No 4 Wireless Company. In September 1938 it was redesignated No 2 Company GHQ Signals (Home).
The unit served with the British Expeditionary Force in France from September 1939 until final evacuation from Dunkerque in May 1940.
