THE KING'S ROYAL HUSSARS
The KRH are a British heavy armoured regiment based in Tidworth, Wiltshire. Equipped with the awesome Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank and the Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked), they are also trained on a variety of other armoured vehicles.
The regiment has been based at Tidworth in England since 2000. It sent squadrons back to Northern Ireland in 2002, served in Iraq (2003-11) in 2005 and 2007, and sent detachments to Afghanistan (2001-14) in 2009 and 2012.
In May 2010, one of its squadrons was the first ever cavalry unit to provide the Falkland Islands protection force. And, in 2016, members of the regiment assisted the Environment Agency in dealing with severe flooding.
Today, it is equipped with the Challenger 2 main battle tank and the Scimitar reconnaissance vehicle.
Although The King’s Royal Hussars was established in 1992, the regiment’s origins stretch back several centuries. The four original cavalry regiments (10th Royal Hussars, 11th Hussars and 14th/20th King's Hussars) that make up the modern King’s Royal Hussars all have long and distinguished histories of service, and each has its own unique customs and traditions.
