  • The Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort's Own) was an infantry rifle regiment of the British Army. Formed in January 1800 as the "Experimental Corps of Riflemen" to provide sharpshooters, scouts and skirmishers, they were soon renamed the "Rifle Corps". In January 1803 they became an established regular regiment and were titled the 95th Regiment of Foot (Rifles). In 1816, at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, they were again renamed, this time as the "Rifle Brigade". The unit was distinguished by its use of green uniforms as standard in place of the traditional redcoat, as well as being armed with the first British-made rifle accepted by the British Army, in place of smooth-bore muskets — the first regular infantry corps in the British Army to be so. After distinguished service in both the First and the Second World Wars, the regiment was amalgamated with the 1st Green Jackets (43rd and 52nd) and the King's Royal Rifle Corps to form the Royal Green Jackets on 1 January 1966.

  • Das 95. Schützenregiment (95th Rifles) war ein Regiment der britischen Armee, das 1800 gegründet wurde. Im Gegensatz zu anderen, regulären Linieninfanterieregimentern kämpften die Rifles nicht in einer strikten Linienformation mit Salvenfeuer, sondern gingen in offener Formation vor, um durch gezieltes Feuer einzelne Soldaten (Offiziere, Geschützbedienungen) auszuschalten. Darüber hinaus wurden sie auch als Plänkler und Aufklärer eingesetzt. Die 95th Rifles waren als erster Verband der britischen Armee nicht mit den königlichen scharlachroten, sondern mit dunkelgrünen Röcken uniformiert. Schwesterregiment war das King’s Royal Rifle Corps, das in den nordamerikanischen Kolonien als Royal Americans aus amerikanischen Kolonisten aufgestellt worden war und später in 60th (King’s Royal Rifle Corps) Regiment of Foot umbenannt wurde. Beide Regimenter gingen später im Regiment Royal Green Jackets auf. Seit 2007 ist der offizielle Traditionsträger das Regiment The Rifles. (de)

  • La Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort's Own) fu un reggimento di fucilieri di fanteria dell'Esercito Britannico. Costituito inizialmente nel 1800 come Experimental Corps of Riflemen ("corpo sperimentale di fucilieri") per fornire all'esercito britannico un reparto di volteggiatori e cacciatori in grado di condurre il combattimento secondo le nuove tattiche adottate dagli eserciti rivoluzionari francesi, venne quasi subito ridenominato The Rifle Corps. Nel gennaio 1803 divenne un reggimento regolare con la denominazione di 95th Regiment of Foot (Rifles), "95º reggimento a piedi (fucilieri)". nel 1816 dopo la sconfitta definitiva di Napoleone Bonaparte assunse il nome definitivo di Rifle Brigade. Dopo aver dimostrato la sua efficienza durante le guerre napoleoniche, la Rifle Brigade si distinse ancora durante la guerra di Crimea e la seconda guerra boera, prima di partecipare alle due guerre mondiali. Questo reggimento si distingueva in origine per l'utilizzo delle uniformi verdi al posto della classica uniforme colore rosso adottata dall'esercito britannico. Le tradizioni della Rifle Brigade sono conservate attualmente dal 4º battaglione del nuovo reggimento The Rifles dell'esercito britannico. (it)
