Become a Friend today and be part of an unbroken tradition of veteran care and support here at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the first organisation in Britain to look after Army veterans and where we have cared for the Chelsea Pensioners for 325 years.

In return, we will offer you a host of exclusive benefits, including access to the annual Governor’s Review, where the Chelsea Pensioners parade in their scarlet tunics.
