The Yorkshire Regiment is the only true County regiment remaining in the British Army. With over 300 years of history and achievements behind us, we are the infantry regiment of choice for young men looking to join the Army. Our two Regular battalions; one armoured infantry, one light role, are complemented by a Reserve battalion based in our home towns across Yorkshire and Teesside. Together, Yorkshire’s Warriors are highly regarded for their operational excellence and sporting achievements. The bond we have with our home County, our history and our families is what makes us and who we are – ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’
The YRA exists to promote the efficiency of the Regiment by fostering esprit-de-corps, comradeship and the general welfare of the Regiment as well as establishing and preserving its traditions. The YRA also makes recommendations to the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolence Committee, in order to provide relief, either generally or individually, for members of the Association, and to past and present members of the Regiment and their dependents, who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress.
