This meticulously researched and edited book covers the story of the Regiment’s 29 tours – more than any other regiment in the British Army. It takes the story from the start of OP BANNER to the end, when the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment closed the last operational base. It thus sets our story into the context of the politics, background and major operations in what was a turbulent time in the United Kingdom’s history.

Packed with new stories, photographs, maps and cartoons, this book will give any reader a thorough grasp of the campaign in which for 17 years and 10 months of its 26-year existence, one or more battalions of the Regiment were on operations.

All proceeds from the sale of the book after costs will be donated to The Queen's Regiment Benevolent Fund.

‘This book is a very detailed account of the operations of The Queen’s Regiment deployed to Northern Ireland over more than 30 years. It is a great tribute to the courage, perseverance, resilience and professionalism of those who served in the Regiment throughout that period and The Longest Stag records how well the battalions of The Queen’s Regiment did.’ General Sir Roger Wheeler, GOC Northern Ireland and Chief of the General Staff
