PWRR Unconquered I Serve
PWRR Fierce Pride!.

Welcome ..

Welcome to the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment Association (East Kent) Branch. We as a Branch are centred on Canterbury, Kent and the surrounding areas. We were established originally from the Territorial Battalions of 5 QUEENS and 5PWRR which became 3 PWRR. Formed as a club in 2004, our vesting day to establish as a Branch was 6 September 2008. This meant we became the first full Branch of the PWRR Association.

Our Branch runs on different lines to older branches from our forebear Regiments. We have three main social events a year including our AGM and attend the Canterbury Remembrance Parade. That means we have a Branch Committee who plan events for our 130 members but with no monthly meetings.

The Colonel of the Regiment's main effort has been to develop a fully effective Regimental Network - our membership is therefore open to serving, retired or family members of the Regiment, be they Regular, Territorial, Reservist, NRPS and FTRS. If you have served in the PWRR or its forebear Regiments we would like to hear from you.

John Redfern - Chairman

The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment

The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (PWRR) is England's senior infantry regiment. Known as The Army Tigers, the Regiment is made up of Regimental Headquarters, three battalions and a Reserve company:

  • 1 PWRR - a Regular battalion currently based in Germany
  • 2 PWRR - a Regular battalion currently based in Cyprus
  • 3 PWRR - a Reserve battalion based in the eastern side of our recruiting area in the South East of England
    4 PWRR - a Reserve battalion based in the western side of our recruiting area in the South East of England- This Battalion is exciting news for the Regiment, it becomes the first Battalion to be formed in our direct lineage for over 50 years. The headquarters will be based in Redhill with Companies in Crawley, Southampton, Farnham and taking over the B Company (Queen's) The London Regiment. The battalion is currently recruiting and will be established in early 2018
  • Our soldiers come from the South-East of England including London, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Middlesex, The Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.
    Army Tigers embody the virtues of courage, self-discipline and loyalty.
    Soldiers from The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment have been in every major conflict since the Second World War and are one of the most decorated regiments for gallantry in the British Army. These include 57 Victoria Crosses (the nation's highest award for conspicuous gallantry), one of which was won in Iraq by Sgt Johnson Beharry, who is one of only two serving VC holders in the British Army.

The Army Tigers don't live in the past, we learn from it so that we can deal effectively with the future.
