The Queen's Royal Hussars



The QRH was formed on the 1st September 1993, with the amalgamation of The Queen's Own Hussars and the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars. The Regiment has been particularly active since amalgamation. It was the first regiment to deploy Challenger 1 tanks into Bosnia with the NATO Stabilization Force in 1996 and soon after it deployed to Northern Ireland in the dismounted role.

An independent Tank Squadron deployed to Kosovo in 2001 with Challenger 2 tanks, before the Regiment deployed as a whole later that year in the dismounted role. The current Regiment embodies the traditions and fighting spirit of it's predecessors. It is currently based in Sennelager, Germany where it makes up the Armoured Regiment of 20 Armoured Brigade.
