"Welcome to the web site of the Scots Guards Association. Scots Guardsmen and their families remain a part of the Regiment for life and this association helps serving and retired members to stay in touch, while coordinating support to our troops in the front line or members of the Regimental family in time of need. We take great care in looking after our old soldiers and their families, which costs an increasing amount of money every year from our charitable fund. Our Regiment has been serving the Crown for over 350 years and we are immensely proud of our heritage and our ability to adapt to changing times both in the British Army and the country as a whole. Please enjoy learning about our Association and if you were once part of the family then why not renew those ties and join your local Branch."

The website is an excellent way of finding out what is going on within the Regiment and also all Branches of the Association.
If you know of anyone who was a member of the Regiment but is not a member of the Association please encourage him to go along to his nearest Branch meeting or even better still, take him along with you when you next go to a meeting.  As Scots Guardsmen there is a bond between us no matter how long you served or what rank you were. It is always good to meet up with those whom you have served with or even those who were in before you. There is a common bond between us and that is that we are all  SCOTS GUARDSMEN.
