Association & Regimental Family
One County- One Regiment - One family
The YRA exists to promote the efficiency of the Regiment by fostering esprit-de-corps, comradeship and the general welfare of the Regiment as well as establishing and preserving its traditions. The YRA also makes recommendations to the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolence Committee, in order to provide relief, either generally or individually, for members of the Association, and to past and present members of the Regiment and their dependents, who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress.
New branches of the Yorkshire Regiment Association have been established in towns where there are already active YORKS Army Reserve Centres: Barnsley, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Sheffield and York. These are locations where our ‘Yorkshire Warrior’ veterans can meet in comradeship and friendship and more ‘joint’ branches have been created in partnership with our antecedent regimental associations.
The Chairman of the YRA is Major Pat Ralph MM and the Patron is Sir Gary Verity CEO of Welcome to Yorkshire.
