Support "Irish Guards in Afghanistan" wristbands.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone here know where I can get some of these, and show my support for this regiment. I support Help for Heroes, but being Irish, would also like to show support for the Irish Guards.
     
  2. Can you get to Windsor? They are bound to sell them here soon. If you like, I will ask around.
     
  3. Not at the moment as I am in Dublin, and wanted to try to get an address to send a donation to, and for them to send the wristbands back.
     
  4. When I get a chance, I will ask and let you know. I have no official connection but know a few casually that drink in my local.

    They seem a good bunch of lads BTW.
     
  5. There may not be such a thing as these as the Irish Guards haven't been to Afghanistan as a formed unit I believe although individuals have served with other units.
     
  6. I was made aware that they were available as a fund raiser for the regiment, towards their deployment in late 2010. The funds raised are to go towards providing assistance for families of injured soldiers, and accomodate families visiting wounded soldiers in Birmingham.

    I know the name of the RRO, but have no further contact details.
     
  7. Try RHQ at Welly B mucker, that's where the Scots Guards ones come from.
