About Us


 If your cap badge appears above then you are most likely to already be a life member. You may have joined whilst serving or you became eligible via the days pay scheme. Full membership is open to all ranks including adult instructors of the A.C.F and C.C.F. units.  We also welcome as Associates those Servicemen and Women who have served as attached personnel. Finally we have a category for Branch Associates. This is for friends of the Regiment, interested persons from other corps, regiments or services and the public.

County Administrative Areas

At a meeting held in 2017 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. The overall aim of the County Offices will be to keep the name of the antecedent regiments alive in throughout the three counties and encourage those leaving the Rifles from the areas to join and be part of the wider family
