Yorkshire Regiment

The Yorkshire Regiment was formed on 6 June 2006 by the amalgamation of the Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire (14th/15th Foot), the Green Howards (Alexandra, Princess of Wales's Own Yorkshire Regiment) (19th Foot), The Duke of Wellington's Regiment (West Riding) (33rd/76th Foot) and associated Territorial Army units. It is founded on more than 300 years of 'Yorkshire Warrior' tradition and has drawn many recruits from the Kirklees area.
