The Yorkshire Volunteers was a rather shortlived regiment in military terms (1967-1993)although other Yorkshire TA regiments were locally known as "Yorkshire Volunteers" unofficially.

The capbadge was a rather fetching silver rose surmounted by a crown with a scroll simply bearing the world "Yorkshire"

With all the changes since the early 1990s the regiment is scattered with some units under The Tyne Tees Regiment (ie the DLI company) and some coming back into The Yorkshire Regiment.

Interestingly under the new Yorkshire Regiment the regular battalions will assume the short form names of the old TA battallions, ie 1 Yorks, 2 Yorks etc with the old TA 1,2 & 3 yorks becoming 4 Yorks.
