4th & 7th Royal Tank Regiment

Home of 4 rtr

This is the history of two remarkable Regiments whose story is inextricably linked from the very start of tank warfare. They fought side by side many times and were totally destroyed twice. They each won the only VCs to be awarded to armoured troops in the Second World War. This is their story from Flers in 1916 to Tidworth in 1993.
