Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal
 
The Welsh Guards have now completed two operational tours in Afghanistan, the first being in 2009 and the second in 2012. Both tours resulted in a number of Welsh Guardsmen killed in action and many more wounded in action, not to mention the concerns of post-traumatic stress disorder. We are likely to see the effects of PTSD in the future.
As a result of these tours, we know the years ahead will make great demands on The Regiment.

The Appeal helps enable the Regiment to support:

  • The families and dependants of those killed in action, by responding promptly to problems of bereavement and hardship.
  • Those wounded on operations, especially those who have had to leave the army, by helping them find new employment and be active family and community members.
  • The families and dependants of those seriously wounded or injured in prolonged recovery situations.
