The Rifles is a forward-looking, innovative, infantry regiment relying on mutual respect & self-discipline. The Rifles trace their values and heritage back to the Peninsular War and the time portrayed in the TV series Sharpe. Then, as today, independence of thought and action were prized amongst the specialist soldiers equipped with rifles who were known as Riflemen.
