The Ayrshire (Earl of Carrick's Own) Yeomanry was a Regiment of the British Yeomanry and is now an armoured Squadron of the Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry (SNIY), part of the British Army Reserve. It is the Lowlands of Scotland's only Royal Armoured Corps Unit and has an unbroken history stretching back to the 1790s. The Squadron is part of 51st (Scottish) Brigade within the Army's Support Command.
The Ayrshire (Earl of Carrick's Own) Yeomanry was formed as an independent troop of Fencible Cavalry by The Earl of Cassillis in around 1794. It was formally adopted into the Army List in 1798 as The Ayrshire Regiment of Yeomanry Cavalry making it the 7th most senior Yeomanry Regiment in the Army and the most senior in Scotland. The Yeomanry were established and recruited at this time to provide Britain with a defence against any invasion by Napoleon and French forces. The Guidon of The Ayrshire (Earl of Carrick's Own) Yeomanry was presented by General Sir Horatius Murray KBE CB DSO at Culzean Castle, Ayrshire on 24th June 1961. The Badge of the Ayrshire (Earl of Carrick’s Own) Yeomanry is borne on both sides within a circlet bearing the title of the Regiment. The badge appears as a Silver Lion’s Head with Gold Wings.

In the late 18th century, Great Britain faced the threat of invasion from France during the French Revolutionary Wars, which also led to the fear of internal rebellion. The regular army, much of it already engaged abroad, was too small to defend the country, and there were doubts about the effectiveness of the militia. Beckett, Ian Frederick William (2011).

The successive regulations between 1747 and 1868 are supported by tables of 'ancient badges' and battle honours; by many examples of non-regulation practice (in the cavalier tradition of the British cavalry); and by ten dazzling plates by Richard Hook, detailing some 35 flags in full colour.
The Ayrshire Yeomanry were one of the few yeomanry regiments to retain gold lace. After the Boer War the regiment went into khaki with slouch hats and received khaki peaked caps in 1908. The Royal Berkshire Yeomanry. The yeomanry units in Berkshire generally were dressed conventionally in blue from the beginning. A bell topped shako was worn until 1852 when a black japanned helmet with black plume was adopted. In 1858 scarlet tunics were taken into wear much in the style of the contemporary heavy cavalry tunic. Blue overalls were worn with a broad scarlet stripes. At the same time a white plume replaced the black one on the helmet.
