queen's regiment2016 saw the Dedication Service of the Queen's Regiment Memorial, officiated by The Right Reverend John Kirkham. The 50th Commemoration of the formation of the Regiment

The Memorial displays, inter alia, a list of ‘Campaigns and Theatres of Operation'.

On 15 May, over 250 members of the Regiment and their families gathered at the National Memorial Arboretum, near Lichfield, Staffordshire, to dedicate a new Memorial to our Regiment. The planning for the day started over three years ago when it was decided that the 50th Anniversary of formation should be marked by the erection of a memorial to honour the Queen's Regiment and all those who had served in it.

It was unveiled by Captain Harrie Welmer, Defence and Naval Attache to the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
