The 3rd Bt Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment is the Order of St.George’s affiliated regiment, and we support financially the work of the Regimental Welfare Fund.
Known as the Tigers, the Regiment recruits many of its officers and soldiers from Kent, Sussex, Surrey, London, Middlesex and Hampshire as well as the the Isle of Wight. It is also the only infantry regiment that recruits from the Channel Islands.
The Regiment has a long, distinguished history, having been involved in virtually every theatre of war since the Battle of Tangier in 1662.
It is the most decorated of all British Army regiments, with 57 Victoria Crosses including the VC awarded to Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry in 2004 for his gallantry in Iraq.
