The history of the Queen's can be traced back to at least 1661 when The Regiment first paraded under its Colonel, the Earl of Peterborough, on Putney Heath on 14th October 1661. It then sailed for Tangier in January 1662.

We could cover a brief history of The Queen's but the Surrey Infantry museum website covers the Queen's history in fine detail. It also includes a timeline from 1657 until 1992 with the Amalgamation of The Queen's Regiment and The Hampshire Regiment.
