1 RIFLES are a Light Roled Infantry Battalion within 3 Commando Brigade, a unique role within the infantry. Based in Chepstow, they are able to maintain strong regimental links to the West Country. As part of 3 Commando Brigade, they will be involved in arctic and mountain warfare training and will exercise and go on operations with the Brigade. Individuals will complete the Commando Course. The battalion have recently been Army rugby champions and a member of the battalion won the much prized Queen’s medal at Bisley for the Regular Army’s top shot. Like all the other battalions of The Rifles, they have recently been deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan
