There was an excellent turnout from the Association, D Company and the Army Cadets for our last parade of the year on Remembrance Sunday and the recent Officers’ Club Annual Lunch was also very well attended.
We were also extremely pleased that members of D Company were able to visit our oldest Rifleman, Charles Ward at his home in Bexhill-on-Sea as he celebrated his 103rd birthday on 16th December 2021. A fantastic milestone and quite amazing that he joined the London Irish Rifles just after the outbreak of war in October 1939.
We now look forward to a most healthy and very prosperous 2022.

Support may be available to serving and former members of the Regiment and their dependents. Grants are not made to settle debts and, while not all claims are accepted, a fairly generous approach is adopted in most cases. Those who are eligible and finding themselves in need of support or are now in straitened financial circumstances due to the present pandemic should consider an application.
