The Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry is a new creation, created out of the restructuring of the Yeomanry regiments.

The Secretary of State for Defence announced that the name of the Regiment is planned to change to "The Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry". A new HQ (Lothians and Border Horse) Squadron will be formed in Edinburgh.

It will be formed from the RHQ of the Royal Mercian and Lancastrian Yeomanry and three Squadrons of the Queen's Own Yeomanry:

The Regiment will be paired with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards in the Light Cavalry role under Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) 2020. They will be primarily equipped with the WMIK Land Rover.[2]
