The East Kent Branch Grenadier Guards Association has been in existence since 1948 and we are always looking to recruit new members to the Branch in order we may continue for many more years to come.  We know that there are many Grenadiers living or working in the East Kent area, but who have yet to become involved with Association activities.  Whether you are still serving, or have been discharged from the Colours, we welcome you making contact with us with a view to joining the East Kent Branch.


Attending our meetings and events is a great way to learn more about the Association, rekindle friendships from your service, meet other members, and most importantly – have fun!  To inspire you to get involved, take a look at our upcoming events page.

Also, take a look at our current list of Serving, Grenadier, Associate, Honorary and Social members that can be found on our The Branch page (look for the toggles).  How many of them do you know from your military service together?  Wouldn’t it be great to get in touch with them again to “swing the lamp”, “pull up a sandbag”, or just catch up again?  Even if there is no one you know listed, the East Kent Branch assures you that a very warm welcome awaits you.

Officers, who have formerly served in the Grenadier Guards, and Discharged Grenadier Guards Soldiers, provided they have completed their recruit training in the Regiment and have been awarded a character assessment of not less than “SATISFACTORY“, form the core of our membership, but we also welcome membership applications from those who have served in the Life Guards, the Blues and Royals (Household Cavalry Regiment), Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards (The Household Division) who may be elected as Associate Members of the Branch.  At the discretion of the Branch Committee, non-Household Division serving and non-serving personnel may also be granted Associate membership of the East Kent Branch.

Whether you are young, or not so young, we are always pleased to welcome new members.  We look forward to hearing from you and you joining our friendly Regimental fraternity.

Should you need any assistance, or have questions about membership, please contact us via our Contact Us page.
