Welcome to the website of the Royal Green Jackets Regimental Association. Within, you will discover a range of topics with a particularly wide and informative section covering our regimental history.

The former regiments of the Royal Green Jackets were the innovators of modern day infantry tactics who concentrated on individual marksmanship, self discipline and a mutual respect between all ranks. The remainder of the army has long since adopted these principles and the Royal Green Jackets continued to improve upon the original concepts.

On 25th July 1992 the 1st, 2nd and 3rd RGJ merged into two Battalions. The 2nd and 3rd Battalions redesignated as 1st and 2nd Battalions.

The Royal Green Jackets with the Light Infantry, The Devon and Dorset Light Infantry, The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Light Infantry and the Rifle Volunteers (TA) formed a new Regiment called The Rifles on 1st February 2007.
