Association

Aims and Objectives

Although the Gurkha Army Service Corps was founded in 1958, it was not until 1962 that a Regimental Association was created and the first Regimental Newsletter published. The Regimental Journal came later in 1985 and has been produced annually ever since. The first few meetings were attended by very few members but their numbers grew as the membership increased. Initially meets were held in a convenient location, sometimes a pub. As the numbers increased so the location became bigger. On occasions the cricket pavilion in Buller Barracks, Aldershot was used. Then we went to the old Mons Officers Mess and sometimes one of the halls at RMA Sandhurst. For many years, the Buller Officers Mess was used. We are now settled to using the Officers Mess to which the Regiment belongs.

The aims of the Association are to keep contact with past and present members of the Regiment and its antecedents, to foster esprit de corps and comradeship. It supports the welfare of the Regiment and preserves the traditions of the Regiment in its different guises. We give support to the Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Gurkha Brigade in the relief of old soldiers in need and have two of our own charities; one supporting those in Nepal and India and the other giving aid to education.
