Intelligence Corps Association (ICA)

The Intelligence Corps Association (ICA) was formed with the sole purpose of promoting 'Esprit De Corps' and forming a 'family' atmosphere throughout the Intelligence Corps.

It enables retired members to stay in touch with each other and with serving members, fostering new contacts and maintaining old ones with the annual Journal, which every member receives, playing an important part in this aspect.

The funds created by member's subscriptions enables serving personnel to take part in a wide variety of Corps-wide events, adventure training projects and certain social functions with their Units. Through liasion with SSAFA, they are used as welfare and benevolence grants.

For those personnel getting ready to leave the service in the next 18-24 months, why not register with the Intelligence Corps Association Resettlement Employment Cell (ICAREC).


Membership of the Intelligence Corps Association (ICA) is open to all former members of the Intelligence Corps. It is also open to members of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) and Woman's Royal Army Corps (WRAC) employed in Intelligence trades.

Certain categories of other ex-service personnel are also invited to join as associate members from time to time. If you wish to join ICA please contact your Regional Secretary following the links on this site, or write to us at the address at the bottom of this page.

Please include your regimental number, last held rank and any other detail that will assist in verifying your link with the Intelligence Corps. Once your military service has been confirmed, an application form will be sent out and you will be put in contact with the nearest Regional Secretary.

Benevolence and grants

The Intelligence Corps Association is a Registered Charity that is able to provide some funds in support of members and former members of the Corps in need. There are also other bequests from former members of the Corps to assist with the education of officers and soldiers children.

Requests for benevolent assistance normally come from the major service charities the Royal British Legion; Soldiers, Sailors and Airforce Association (SSAFA); or from the Veterans Agency. However, if a member of the Corps or former member of the Corps you know needs assistance, advice should be sought in writing from:

The Corps Secretary
Intelligence Corps Association
Headquarters Intelligence Corps
