Trust Fund


The Trust Fund holds money donated or bequeathed to the battalion. Until the 1990s, these amounts were held in many small accounts, each to be used for a specific purpose. In 1991, it was decided to rationalise this by taking all funds into one account, to be used to help members of the battalion, administered by a small group of trustees.
