The SNIY is a Reserve Light Cavalry Regiment with a Combat Recce role. Specialising in mounted and dismounted recce, by day and night in all weather conditions we train to find, observe, influence and where required fix and strike the enemy. Equipped with the latest night vision aids and platform weapon systems, we have recently converted to the JACKAL vehicle, in which we have the perfect blend of manoeuvre, protection and firepower. Opportunities exist across the Regiment to train as a gunner, radio operator, driver, sharp shooter, commander, medic, chef, clerk or physical training instructor.

What To Expect

Army Reserve Centres are where Reservists meet for their regular training sessions (known as drill nights).

Most units are really happy for people to join them for drill nights. You'll get a real look at what it's like to be a Reservist. You'll also get the chance to spend time with serving Reservists, and you're able to ask them any questions you might have.

When you decide to apply, your local unit will help you through the process - you don't need to wait until you've finished Army Assessment to get involved.

To join, you have to apply online. The application process will take some time, but you can also ring the unit you're interested in joining - the team there will help often invite you to join them for drill nights, and you'll get support for your application.

Some units are specialist - these are units for people with specific skills.
