Our first Chairman was Lieutenant Colonel Arthur Salwey Hanning OBE (commissioned number 391), who was awarded the OBE on 24th January 1946. Our current President and Chairman is Major Dennis Bradley BEM DL who was elected Branch President in May 2003 (assuming the role from Ernie Couchman) and was elected Branch Chairman (assuming the role from Ray Colley) on 15 March 2009.
Through regular meetings, social events, newsletters, other interactions and welfare support, the Kent Branch continues to keep alive the comradeship formed in military service. Through the Association, we can provide welfare for our old and needy ex-servicemen and widows.
We are governed by the Regimental Association and follow their Association Rules and By-Laws for Branches.
We extend a warm welcome to all former Grenadiers who have passed through training at Caterham, Pirbright, Windsor, Catterick or other Guards Training establishments and who live or work in Kent.
We also welcome membership applications from all former Troopers and Guardsmen of other Regiments of the Household Division.
