Within these pages you will find the history of the King`s Royal Rifle Corps and evidence of the brotherhood of Riflemen who have served in the KRRC and continue to serve in our modern counterpart, The Rifles. The KRRC, along with our comrades-in-arms of the Rifle Brigade have always possessed certain marked characteristics and instead of a rigid approach to new problems our leaders have encouraged an independence of thought that has enabled the Regiment to successfully adapt to meet changing conditions and any challenge that it came upon.

Since the KRRC was raised on Christmas Day 1755, the evidence of the continued brotherhood of Riflemen is provided by the popularity of the Regimental Association from which this web site takes its name. The continued strength of the Association establishes beyond any doubt that once having served as a Rifleman that distinction stays with most of us for the rest of our lives.

Please give consideration to the fact that we have no facilities for tracing the service history of soldiers who have served with the KRRC or its Territorial units.
