Tara Guyler

I began my career as a Troop Leader in the Royal Tank Regiment (RTR) in 2017 as one of the first women to commission into a combat arm.

After completing my Phase Two training to become a qualified Tank Commander, I deployed with my troop and led them on multiple Battlegroup (BG) overseas exercises throughout 2018 and 2019. In June 2020, I took over as Dreadnaught Squadron Second-in-Command, tasked with preparing the Squadron to deploy on operations in Estonia as part of the enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) BG. After assisting in the planning and execution of Mission Ready Training (MRT) in Germany with the RTR BG, I deployed with the Squadron to Estonia in September 2021 on Operation CABRIT 9 to take over as the eFP BG, where I am still deployed today.
