Hello and Welcome...
This website has been created to improve the communication between all serving and former members of the Regiment, especially those now living in and around Australia.
If you are a former 'Green Jacket' living in Australasia then please feel free to join us. You will be made most welcome!
To email the Chairman click on the link provided. I look forward to hearing from you.
As you can see from the Menu, the Branch Website houses a variety of information from archived newsletters since the Branch was formed, many photos, a members guest book, and a wealth of information that has been collated since this Branch was created in February 2001.
Although I do not wish to turn people away, if we (The Australasian Branch) open up membership to every Green Jacket on the net, it would make a mockery of this Branch, However I would encourage all non- australasian located readers’ to join our Branch as affiliated members. In order to do this I would ask that you complete the membership application form and send it to me. (Those that are NOT already Branch members).
The Branch members within Australasia pay an annual subscription for Branch membership. Those outside of Australasia only have to pay a registration fee of $10 Australian, which is about £3 roughly depending on the exchange rate.
The Branch membership currently stands at 48 located throughout Australasia. We also have about 20 affiliated members in the UK, most of which have now visited Australia and met some of the members and some have even marched with us on formal occasions.
You are most welcome to join us if you served in the Royal Green Jackets, one of the antecedent regiments, the new Rifles Regiment or the Light Infantry.
Please feel free to browse our site at your leisure, and we look forward to receiving your membership application.
Regards, and thank you for taking the time to read this and using our site.
