Our Journey


The Trust commissioned, established in 2017 the only memorials to the Regiment in Masnieres, France and latterly in 2018 and 2019 in St Peter Port, Guernsey. It maintains these without support. 

In 2019 the programme moved from the 'commemorative to the cultural' with the forging of lasting links with the cultural diplomacy of the twinning of Masnieres and St Peter Port.

In 2022 the Trust established educational exchanges with student between Guernsey and Masnieres continuing their ambition to instil positive values through experiences across communities enhancing global citizenship.

In late 2023 the Trust announced the commencement of 'Project Seize' the acquisition and refurbishment of 16 Les Rue Vertes (a property in which the men of the RGLI sheltered) with the objective of turning this into an education centre to form the basis of the physical fixing of this cultural work between the two communities 

The work continues to bond all aspects of our communities together in friendship and fraternity borne from a shared history. The Royal Guernsey Light Infantry Charitable Trust is a registered charity which receives all its support from the generous donation of the public.

The Trust are grateful for the unique dual patronage of both His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor of Guernsey, Lieutenant General Richard Cripwell CB CBE CStJ and The Bailiff of Guernsey, Sir Richard McMahon.
