The Rifles London Office is co-located with F Company, 7 RIFLES in Davies Street, London.

The offices are manned with a County Secretary and either one or two Administrative Officers.

Rifles Offices provide the focal point for all Rifles regimental affairs within their counties and coordinate the activities across the regulars, reserves, cadets associations and the wider communities, collectively known as the 5 Pillars of the Regiment. They promote the longevity of The Rifles with emphasis on providing assistance with the recruitment of soldiers and officers, the welfare of serving soldiers and their families and veterans, and the pursuit of successful Public Relations in support of The Rifles.

Day to day they are involved in planning and organising and publicising local Regimental sporting, social or input to public events i.e. Freedoms or local county shows.

They are the link into their local communities for all matters concerning our serving riflemen and our veterans.
