The Colonel’s Fund

IN OUR NAME

The 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards recently returned from operations in Afghanistan – its third tour in five years. They were engaged in some of the fiercest and most prolonged infantry fighting the British Army has experienced in recent times. This has not been without painful sacrifice and long term consequences.

THE COST

While the physical costs are currently known, a further indeterminate number of psychiatric injuries from these deployments will not become apparent for many years to come.
