There are no subscriptions from serving individuals but all members of the Regiment who subscribe to the 'Day's Pay Scheme' are automatically life members. Ex members of the Regiment who wish to join the Association but have not subscribed to the Day's Pay Scheme pay a subscription of £10.00. The Day's Pay Scheme commenced in January 1965. All WW2 veterans are also exempt payment.
All Branches of the RTR Association are expected to contribute an annual subscription to the Central Fund of the RTR Association to defray general expenditure incurred in connection with regimental functions and administration costs. The amount of Branch subscriptions will vary according to the strength of the Branch numbers.
