The Colonel's Fund Grenadier Guards

A Message from The Colonel, HRH The Prince Philip, KG, KT

One of the most valuable features of the regimental system is the sense of cohesion that it creates between present and past members of the Regiment, and with all their families and friends. This is reflected in the saying 'Once a Grenadier, Always a Grenadier'. It is the guarantee of mutual support, come what may.

The feeling of family loyalty is all very well, but, when the need arises, it has to be converted into action. This fundraising initiative is intended to give real substance to that commitment to mutual support. It will allow a practical regimental family response to the severe stresses and to the sad toll of lives and serious injuries endured by members of the First Battalion, and their families, in recent operations.

The fund remains open for donations, so if you have any fund raising ideas, please do pursue them. However, with the return of Jeremy Quarrie to the 1st Battalion, Regimental Headquarters has no capacity to support fund-raising events, so anything that is planned should be self-supporting.

Nonetheless, please do let Regimental Headquarters know of your plans.
