Please visit www.qooh.org.uk for the new website of the
Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussars and Oxfordshire Yeomanry
Welcome to the Oxfordshire Yeomanry website.
It has been designed to promote the activities of the Oxfordshire Yeomanry Trust (OYT) and the Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussars Association (QOOHA). In addition, it contains highlights from the history of the Oxfordshire Yeomanry (Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussars) and details of its current descendant unit, 142 (QOOH) Vehicle Squadron RLC (part of 165 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC) based at Banbury Army Reserve Centre – the modern-day spiritual home of the QOOH.

Since its formation in 1798 the unit has undergone many changes from its original function of Cavalry, through the roles of the Royal Artillery, Infantry, the Royal Signals and finally to the Royal Logistic Corps. With some changes this has also required a change of cap-badge - pictured above - to coincide with their changes of role.
A new page, containing a Roll of Honour for OY/QOOH soldiers is now active. Please go and take a look.
