Active ServiceMen from the Regiments of the Household Division have taken part in nearly every war or internal security operation in which the British Army has been involved during the past 330 years. Their fighting qualities, tenacity and courage have been an example for all to see. Their system of training, with its discipline and high standards, has remained at the heart of their great tradition.

In modern times members of the Household Division have displayed their fighting skill in jungle, desert and mountain, in freezing cold and steaming heat. They have proved adaptable and flexible as shown by their conversion to armour in the Second World War and the formation of the famous Guards Armoured Division and 6th Guards Tank Brigade.

They have applied common sense, sound judgement and fighting skill to the many difficult internal security operations such as Cyprus, Palestine, Aden, Malaya, Borneo and the Falklands Campaign in which they have taken part. More recently they have played their full part in Northern Ireland.

Within the Household Division there are Regiments equipped with armoured cars, Challenger tanks, Warrior armoured personnel carriers and many other vehicles.
All Regiments have the most modern equip¬ment in the form of weapons, radio sets, radar and night viewing equipment. Many members are parachute trained.
