THE ROYAL LANCERS – AT THE LEADING EDGE
The Royal Lancers are the eyes and ears of the 3rd (UK) Division. As the Divisional Reconnaissance Battlegroup and as a reconnaissance regiment, our role is to provide timely, accurate information to Brigade and Divisional commanders regardless of the conditions we find ourselves in. Whether mounted on our vehicles or dismounted, we employ the very best of the British Army to make tactical decisions which have strategic consequences.
As well as reconnaissance, we are trained and ready to fight using a wide range of equipment.
Family is the beating heart of the Regiment and we have a long and proud history dating back to 1689. The Royal Lancers is born out of the union of six original Lancer regiments and is thus steeped in centuries of history and traditions.
