The Association

The Grenadier Guards Association is the largest regimental association in the British Army, currently consisting of thirty eight branches across the world.

The Association is a registered charity exisiting to fulfill the following functions:

  • To maintain connection between past and present members of the Grenadier Guards, and thereby promote their mutual interests and the welfare of the Regiment generally.
  • To grant financial assistance to needy members or their widows, or on behalf of their children, provided their adverse circumstances are of an unavoidable nature and that the funds of the Association permit.
  • To circulate information concerning the Regiment and the advantages of service therein, and to encourage desirable candidates to join.
  • To arrange meetings in London or such other place as may help to promote the objects shown above.

Serving members of the Regiment and members of the Grenadier Guards Association meet together each year at a variety of events such as Regimental Rememberance Day (known as Black Sunday), Grenadier Day and annual branch dinners.
