Army Tigers Welfare

Your country values your service

Your country values the service given by you to The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment and its Forebear Regiments, regardless of rank and status.

Of paramount importance to The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment Association is the facilitation of Aftercare for officers and soldiers leaving the Regiment and Benevolence for all who require assistance.

ARMY TIGERS WELFARE

All soldiers on leaving the Regiment are offered aftercare, which consists in the main of:

  • Assistance with finding employment.
  • Direction and assistance with applications for Medical pensions via the Veterans agency.
