The Tigers were formed over 20 years ago and are firmly established as one of the top parachute display teams within the United Kingdom. The team has been very successful in competitions throughout this period, performing at events such as the British National Parachute Championships and the World Parachute Championships.
The Tigers are the flagship team for the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, whose seniority stems from the Tangier Regiment of 1661 and thus has the distinction of being the senior English Infantry Regiment of the line. Soldiers of the Regiment are recruited from Kent, Surrey, Sussex, London, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. Members of The Tigers consist of volunteers from various battalions of the regiment.
The Tigers perform displays throughout the country the majority of which would be carried out within the recruiting areas as mentioned above. The team is led by WO1 Ian Wicks, who is for the organisation and management of the team.
