QDG Poland Christmas Hamper Appeal 2020
QDG are once again deployed to Poland over Christmas, away from families and friends. The Regimental Comrades Association is organising 2 hampers in conjunction with the RY. One to be sent to the 140 guys and girls of CASSINO TROOP (USA size Troop!) in Poland, and another to the 140 NoK families in the UK.
Please can you donate generously so we can give them all a really good Happy Christmas from the regimental family.
Thank you! Mark AM and Chris G.
Cassino Troop is a hybrid organisation centred on 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards and the Royal Yeomanry deployed to North Eastern Poland as part of the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence Poland Battle Group. Consisting of 139 people drawn from across the United Kingdom and representing a total of 10 Regiments, the hybrid nature of Cassino Troop makes it a unique deployment in defence operations showing what is possible when regulars and reserves integrate’.
There are two charities that support the Regiment and the regimental family, and donations are welcome for both.
