The principal object is to foster esprit de corps and comradeship and to preserve the traditions and history of the Regiment for all former members of the Regiment and members of the Association.
Further objects include:
- to maintain contact between members of the Association, fostering mutual friendship among them;
- to maintain liaison between the Association and the Regimental Association of The Royal Gurkha Rifles and with serving members of that regiment;
- to provide for members of the Association to play a full part in the charitable activities carried out by The Gurkha Brigade Association and The Gurkha Welfare Trust in the relief of individual former members of the Regiment and their dependants who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress, and further to act as a channel of communication between members of the Association in need and the many sources of welfare support and benevolence that may from time to time be available.
