The Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment was a line infantry regiment of the British Army in existence from 1881 to 1961. The regiment was created in 1881 under the Childers Reforms as the Queen's Own (Royal West Kent Regiment) by the amalgamation of the 50th (Queen's Own) Regiment of Foot and the 97th (The Earl of Ulster's) Regiment of Foot. In January 1921, it was renamed the Royal West Kent Regiment (Queen's Own) and, in April of the same year, was again renamed, this time as the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment. After distinguished service in both World War I and World War II, on 1 March 1961, the regiment was amalgamated with the Buffs (Royal East Kent Regiment) to form the "Queen's Own Buffs, The Royal Kent Regiment", which was also destined to be short-lived. On 31 December 1966, the Queen's Own Buffs was merged with the other regiments of the Home Counties Brigade the Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment, the Royal Sussex Regiment and the Middlesex Regiment to form the Queen's Regiment which was also amalgamated the Royal Hampshire Regiment, on 9 September 1992, to form the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment. Throughout its existence, however, the regiment was popularly, and operationally, known as the "Royal West Kents".
