Guardsman

Infantry

The Guards are proven in combat as light and mechanised infantry and train across the world.

"I chose to be a guardsman because I wanted to go on operations. I deploy to Afghanistan next year."

They might be famous for standing guard outside Buckingham Palace in their red tunics, but British Army guardsmen are also fully trained combat soldiers who deploy on operations abroad. Join them and you'll take part in everything from peacekeeping and disaster relief to armed conflict. And you'll take part in some of Britain's most high-profile public events, like Trooping the Colour.
