Membership

There are two types of membership for the 1LI Association, Full Membership or Honorary Membership, and at this time the committee have elected to keep both of them free which we can only continue to do as long as the association is being supported by as many of our Bn veterans as possible. Membership for both is only given to a single veteran or NOK (family representative) as there is no requirement at this time for all individual family members to hold a membership card.

*Membership cards will be posted out to the address provided on the application as soon as it has been processed and the 1LI Association is not responsible for lost cards due to incorrect addresses being provided.

Full Membership

Full Membership is only for those that joined and served in the 1st Battalion, The Light Infantry.
To have a say in how the association is run or take part in any voting that the committee deems necessary, you will need to be a full 1LI Association member.
If you would like to become a full member then we will require the basic information below from you and should you omit any of the required details your application will not be processed.
