In the Second World War, the regiment did not enter the field as a unit but provided Officers and NCOs for the far larger King’s African Rifles.

In Kenya’s Mau Mau rebellion between 1952 and 1956 the regiment did put operation control companies into the field, as well as once again providing Officers and NCOs for the KAR.

This history by serving member Ian Parker is a comprehensive record of the regiment’s operations and of those who served in it.
