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

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

The complete set of Regimental Journals of The Queen's Own
Hussars is available on DVD
Rom, current cost is £35.00, contact the Regimental Secretary at HHQ.
The Regimental Secretary is always looking for unwanted Journals to make up a
complete set as a reference aid, any donations made would be most welcome.
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.
