Unit History: Inns of Court Regiment

Inns of Court Regiment
The Inns of Court and City Yeomanry (ICCY) is a yeomanry regiment of the Territorial Army. The regiment was formed in 1961 by the amalgamation of the Inns of Court Regiment and the City of London Yeomanry (Rough Riders). During the period up to 1967, the ICCY served as an armoured car regiment, as did many other yeomanry units. The 1967 reorganisation of the TA then led to the regiment being reduced in size to an infantry company, assigned as A Company (Inns of Court and City Yeomanry), the London Yeomanry and Territorials. It served in this form for two years until 1969, when it was reduced to a cadre. Personnel from A Company were then used to form 68 (Inns of Court and City Yeomanry) Signal Squadron, 71 (Yeomanry) Signal Regiment. The cadre was disbanded in 1975. There was an Home Service Force Squadron badged as ICCY designated as 348 (ICCY) Signals Squadron HSF from 1986 to 1993. The squadron was based at Lincolns Inn and wore the original ICCY cap badge. 348 Squadron was organised on the lines of an infantry rifle company and had a key point defence role. The HSF unit ran on for another 12 months as a semi official Defence Platoon the final parade being in 1994.
