The 107 (Ulster) Independent Infantry Brigade was raised in 1947 by Brigadier Nelson Russell CB DSO MC.

The North Irish Horse, however, pre-dates the Brigade and was first raised in 1902.

In 1958 the Honorary Colonel was HRH Princess Alexandra of Kent.

The regiment is now at squadron strength and forms part of the Queen's Own Yeomanry.
