Regimental Association Web Site

The Queen's Royal Hussars (The Queen's Own and Royal Irish)


The Regimental Association

The Queen's Royal Hussars Regimental Association exists to offer support to all former serving members. This may be a simple gathering where former Hussars can meet and enjoy each others company, and nurture the bonds of friendship that were formed during their service with the Regiment. The Association can however offer a far deeper degree of support reintroducing long lost friends, or offering financial support to those who may have fallen on hard times.

If you were a member of, or served on attachment with, the 3rd The Kings Own Hussars,  4th (Queen’s Own) Hussars, 7th (Queen's Own) Hussars,  8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars, The Queen's Own Hussars or The Queen's Royal Irish Hussars and wish to join The Regimental Association, contact the Regimental Secretary for a Registration Form:

The Regimental Secretary,
Home Headquarters,
The Queen's Royal Hussars (The Queen's Own and Royal Irish),
Regents Park Barracks,
Albany Street,

Please be aware that if a member of the Regimental Association does not register with Home Headquarters we do not have any details for them. We are not automatically issued with member’s record of service on their retirement from the colours. We could not possibly hold them all, nor are we allowed to.


All ‘soldiers’ who are serving in the Queen’s Royal Hussars or who served in any of the antecedent regiments are members of the Queen’s Royal Hussars Association by right, but to receive information from the Association they need to ‘register’ with Home Headquarters, which is cost free, by filling in a simple one page proforma available from Home Headquarters, or click the button right to display a copy then Print & Post:

Regimental Association Website Update

Dear Member,
In the Spring 2017 Newsletter members were informed that a new Association Website would be launched within a few months and outlined the reasons why the Association needed to move to a quicker, easier and less expensive way of communicating with our members. The new website would contain the very latest news, updates and forecast events (including online attendance forms for Association events such as The Officers’ Dinner and Birmingham Weekend events), 24/7 and all at the click of a button.

The new Association website was launched on 15 June 2017 and to date we have 459 members successfully registered on the site. However, our email list is currently 1,013 so there are just over 500 of you who will be reading this email who have yet to register on the website. If you have not yet registered I urge you to do so as soon as possible as the website is now the hub for all HHQ and Association news and has replaced the bi-annual postal newsletter. Only those members (63 to date) who have informed us that they have no email address or internet access will continue to receive a bi-annual postal newsletter.

The link to the website is here:       http://www.queensroyalhussars.org/

I am conscious that some members have had problems registering on the site. If you are experiencing a problem simply email or call HHQ on 020 7756 2273 or 2274 and they will assist you to register;  to date of all those who have experienced a problem and contacted HHQ have had their problem resolved without exception.

It is very early days and there will inevitably be teething problems but I am absolutely convinced that the website will prove to be a great success as it evolves and as members become more familiar and confident in using it. Any suggestions that will improve or enhance the website or its contents are welcome and will be given every consideration.

Finally, please spread the word to any Hussars you know who are not registered members of The Association. Our strength is in numbers and it is only together that we can take the Association forward and continue to promote our outstanding serving regiment, as well as remembering and honouring our magnificent antecedent regiments.

Chairman of the Regimental Association

There are a number of Association Troops spread around Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Germany. Although the Association is co-ordinated by Home Headquarters in London the geographical spread of the Troops helps to ensure that you are never far away from the Regiment. Though there are annual Association and Regimental reunions, each Troop relies on the efforts of their own committee and members to maintain a busy and involved social life. There are regular functions and meetings, and all former serving members of the Regiment are encouraged to make the most of all the benefits that can be enjoyed by membership of a Troop.
