The Friends are a great and vibrant organisation to belong to. With three magazines a year, packed full of Regimental History and illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, the Friends is a must for anyone with an interest in The Suffolk Regiment. Covering every period of the Regiments history from its creation in 1685 to its amalgamation in 1959, we have as yet, never repeated a photograph or article and there's plenty more fascinating stories from the Regiments 274 year history yet to come!
Membership to The Friends of The Suffolk Regiment is open to anyone with an interest in The Suffolk Regiment. For those wishing to join us, we have two membership categories:
Associate Membership is available to any former Suffolk Regiment Soldier who served under the cap badge of The Suffolk Regiment until 1959 (This category also extends to former members of The Cambridgeshire Regiment as well)
