The Queen's Own Yorkshire Yeomanry was a Yeomanry regiment of the British Army from 1956 to 1971.[1] It was formed by the amalgamation of three Yorkshire Yeomanry regiments, the Yorkshire Hussars, the Queen's Own Yorkshire Dragoons and the East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry. The regiment was equipped with Daimler Dingo armoured cars and Austin Champs, and later Ferret scout cars and Land Rovers. In 1967, it was disbanded and immediately reconstituted as the Queen's Own Yorkshire Yeomanry (T), a TAVR III (Home Defence) infantry unit of the Territorial Army. It was reduced to a cadre in 1969, and became the Yorkshire Squadron of the Queen's Own Yeomanry in 1971.
