REO Widows Society

The Society was formed in 1785 by all 68 Officers of the Corps serving at that time. Over the years since then the Society has used the income generated by the subscriptions of Officer members to provide financial help for their families when they have died in combat or from other causes.

Today, the Society has some 900 members. The Society's Annuity fund has assets of around £3.5 million and the charitable Samaritan Fund has a further £460 000.
