To join the Windsor Branch read on…
There are three types of membership available in the Association.
Those who have served in the Coldstream Guards.
2) Honorary Members:
Those who have served in the Coldstream Guards and those who have served in other regiments and the TA.
3) Associate Members:
Those who are wives, girlfriends, friends, relations to those who have served, people who are sympathetic towards us, fans etc.
Ladies can join:
I would like to displace a myth and that is if you are female you cannot join us. That is not true, we want ladies to join our group and displace that idea completely. Ladies can apply for an Associate Membership.
The cost is £10.50 per year. This will be for the remainder of the year and renewed at the AGM in March each year. A part of your membership we will post to your home address a copy of the Coldstream Gazette.
The cost for Serving Coldstreamers is £2 a year and renewed at the AGM in March each year.
Members are Coldstreamers who have served in the Coldstream Guards.
Under My Umbrella Ella – Becoming an Honorary Member:
Living in and around Windsor are veterans who have served with other regiments. We want to extend a warm invite for those who have no local association to go to. We would encourage you to join your own association but we know for many this is just not possible. There are some common things familiar to all of us and I am sure we have things we identify with. Should you find yourself without an association home and desiring to become an Honorary Member in the branch please contact us. You will have to provide information of your service and proof that you did serve. Both the Branch and RHQ need to approve your membership and reserve the right to decline your application. See below.
You can become an Associate Member by either being, fans, friends, family and supporters to Coldstreamers.

Walter Mitty Characters:
Occasionally we come across applicants who claim to be WW2 Veterans but are clearly too young to have even taken part in the 2nd World War. Along with them we also have applications from people who clearly are not transparent about their service, if any. We can decline an application if we see fit that the applicant may have problems being able to communicate with seasoned members of the Branch and this could lead to embarrassment on the applicants side. So the application is declined for their own good.
Contact me the Secretary for information on becoming a member of the Windsor Branch of the Coldstream Guards Association.
