County Administrative Areas
At a meeting held earlier this year it was decided to change the RGBW Rifles Regimental Association constitution by splitting it into three to reflect the geographical territories from where the antecedent regiments were recruited: namely Gloucestershire and Bristol, Berkshire, and Wiltshire.
It is inevitable that attempts to keep members abreast of the changes within the running of the Rifles and RGBW Association will not have reached everyone.
The migration of contact details of our membership from the Rifles Database to our newly appointed volunteer Association Secretary post has not been as successful as one would have wished.
As a Glosters, DERR, R Berks, Wilts, RGBW or Rifles veteran, welfare cases, once initiated, will be handled by Rifles HQ in Winchester. However to initiate a welfare case it must be case worked either by SSAFA or Royal British Legion. They will then put your case to the Association for consideration. Regrettably this will not be a quick fix.
