The objectives of the Association are to:
a. Honour the memory of those members of the WFR, its former Regiments and its successors in The Mercian Regiment, particularly those who served in wartime or on operational duty.
b. Help organize and support the annual regimental Reunion in
on the first Saturday in June and the Regimental Pilgrimage at Crich on the first Sunday in July and the Annual Battle of Gheluvelt Ceremony at Gheluvelt park, Worcester on the last Sunday in October, in order to preserve the proud traditions of WFR and those of the former Regiments. Worcester
c. Maintain links with our successors in The Mercian Regiment so that WFRA members may take part in Regimental events, including Freedom Parades and other occasions.
d. Foster mutual friendship between all members and provide social gatherings for them.
e. Facilitate visits to battlefields, war graves, The Garden of Remembrance, and other memorials, services and parades that members wish to attend.
