The Royal Yeomanry's role is reconnaissance, operating ahead of the front line to gather intelligence on the enemy and environment.
Mounted in armoured landrovers (RWMIKs) carrying heavy machine guns, reservist soldiers train to seek out the enemy, report their positions and fix them in place so that they can be destroyed.
To do this our soldiers need to be fit, adaptable and self-reliant, prepared to work in small teams in any weather conditions to get the job done.
The Royal Yeomanry's reconnaissance role means that soldiers need to be as confident sending a vital radio message while driving cross-country as they are carrying out a covert night patrol or manning an Observation Post, a mix of activities which few other units can match.
Headquarters Squadron, based in Fulham, was fomerly known as the 'Westminster Dragoons' and is currently recruiting for reconnaisance soldiers along with specialist roles including clerks, medics and mechanics.
