The youngest of the Household Division Regiments, coming into existence as recently as 26th February 1915, the Welsh Guards already has a proud history and can boast over 40 Battle Honours and two Victoria Cross recipients. Today as much as ever, 1st Battalion Welsh Guards takes its place amongst the finest Regiments in the British Army, whether excelling on Ceremonial Duties or on Operational Deployment, their performance and professionalism is, as always second to none. The Battalion’s recent Operational Tour in Afghanistan, during what was the bloodiest summer of the campaign to date, will go into Welsh Guards history as a time when the supreme sacrifice was made by so many brave Welsh Guardsmen - they will not be forgotten.
Welsh Guards Reunited enables past, present and future members of our fine Regiment, their families, friends, relatives and visitors, to continue to enjoy the camaraderie of the Welsh Guards wherever they may be in the World. The sense of belonging that we have all known, of friendships fostered through adversity and shared experiences in times of difficulty can all be replicated through the pages of Welsh Guards Reunited. Old friendships can be rekindled and new friendships bonded. The friends lost many years ago, found through the pages of our extensive membership database, with the thousands of pictures in our galleries reigniting a memory somewhere long forgotten.
Our membership, spanning several generations, provides a wealth of personal knowledge and experience, not only as serving soldiers, but as Spouses, Mothers and Fathers of serving soldiers also.
