The Leeds Rifles were formed in 1859 as the 7th Yorkshire, West Riding, (Leeds) Rifle Volunteer Corps.

Reorganisation in 1993 found The Leeds Rifles serving as a Company of 3rd Battalion The Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire.

One of the consequences of the Strategic Defence Review of 1998 was that from early 1999, The Leeds Rifles were reduced to a platoon of Imphal Company, the East and West Riding Regiment. The name and traditions will be proudly preserved for many years to come.
