Patron & President
Prince Philip has been our (very active) Patron since 1946. (In fact, he’s been with us longer than he’s been married to Her Majesty.)
HRH remains close to our work, often visiting youth clubs and spending time with young people. They never fail to enjoy meeting him and we all appreciate his enthusiasm for what we do - very much indeed.
Field Marshal the Lord Guthrie is our President. Lord Guthrie was Chief of the Defence Staff between 1997 and 2001, a role he held during the Kosovo conflict, and Chief of the General Staff, the professional head of the British Army, between 1994 and 1997 having previously served in the Welsh Guards and the SAS. Lord Guthrie is also very engaged in and passionate about our work – having, as he says, spent a career responsible for young people.
