The Light Infantry was an infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the Light Division.

The regiment was formed on 10 July 1968 as a large regiment by the amalgamation of the four remaining light infantry regiments of the Light Infantry Brigade:[1]

On 31 March 1969 the 4th Battalion The Light Infantry (formerly The Durham Light Infantry) was disbanded leaving three regular battalions.[1]

The regiment was active all through The Troubles in Northern Ireland with eight soldiers from the regiment killed in the Ballygawley bus bombing.[2]

The remaining battalions remained in service until 1993 when they merged to form two battalions renamed 1st and 2nd Battalions.[1]
