For nearly one hundred years, comrades associations, through their network of local branches, have provided a focal point for former members of the regiment to meet regularly. They also co-ordinate support for soldiers of the regiment who find themselves in difficult circumstances through illness and family hardship.
The associations also provide the link with the serving soldiers giving comrades the opportunity of visiting the regular Battalions even when serving overseas.
The 24th, South Wales Borderers Comrades Club which was formed on Rorke's Drift Day (22nd/23rd January) 1909 at Oudenarde Barracks, Aldershot.
The Welch Regiment Comrades Association which was formed in January 1911.
The Royal Welch Fusiliers Comrades Association who first met on 4th October 1912 and was formally established by trust deed on 22nd April 1924.
The Constituent regiments of The Royal Welsh have active network of association branches. It is expected that over time, gradual integration of branches will take place and joint events held.
Should you wish to contact the local branches, please do so through Regimental Headquarters, Cardiff.
