  The Royal Regiment of Scotland   

The Regimental CapbadgeREGIMENTAL ASSOCIATION  
 
           The Regiment benefits from having a strong Regimental Association, concerned with the ongoing welfare of serving and ex-service members of the regiment, and of the historic Regiments now part of it. The welfare of its members and ex-members is seen as a very important part of the Regiment's obligations, and the Association is strongly supported by it.
 
Its aims and objectives may be summarised as follows:-

  * Promote the welfare of all ranks past and present and of the antecedent Regiments.
  * Foster and promote esprit de corps, comradeship and interest of all ranks.
  * Arrange assistance to those who have served in the Regiment or former Regiments or to their spouses, widows and children.
  * Assisting soldiers to find employment on discharge.
  * Granting financial assistance or gifts to soldiers in distressed or necessitous circumstances, who have served in the Regiment, the former Regiments and their spouses, widows or children.
  * Giving advice to ex members of the Regiment on welfare matters.
  * Supporting Service Charities and Institutions for the benefit of soldiers welfare.
  * Regimental Reunions and forming new branches of the Association.
  * Establish branches in tribal areas in the future.
