Rather than replicate the good work done elsewhere, this page provides a number of links to Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) related sites for your convenience.

The Home Service Military Heritage Society was formed to preserve the heritage of The Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) and the Royal Irish Regiment Home Service Battalions and to maintain and promote an awareness of the contribution and sacrifice of their servicemen and servicewomen in pursuit of peace in Northern Ireland.

They had their own website but we no longer believe  or know if they are operating.  If you know different please let us know.

Her Majesty the Queen conferred the award of the Conspicuous Gallantry Gross (CGC) for Gallantry to the Ulster Defence Regiment and Royal Irish HS BattalionIn October 2006 Her Majesty the Queen conferred the award of the Conspicuous Gallantry Gross (CGC) for Gallantry to the Ulster Defence Regiment and Royal Irish HS Battalion.  Second only to the Victoria Cross, the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross (CGC) is a rare award for military gallantry and is held in the highest esteem by the Armed Forces. It is the first time it has been awarded to a military unit rather than an individual serviceman. 

The Ulster Defence Regiment was a locally raised, part time and full time unit, intended to carry out security duties within Northern Ireland. Formed in 1970. Initially, seven battalions were raised, immediately making it the largest regiment in the British Army. Within two years, a further four battalions were added, taking the total to eleven.
