Survey for all former Lancers: we want to know what you think

Good morning,

Because you once served as a Lancer, you are automatically a member of the Regimental Association and we would like you tell us how we could support you better. There is a link to a survey at the end of this note.

Why we’re doing a survey
It’s very important to us, as the Regimental Association for all Lancer regiments, that we stay connected with anyone who has ever served in any Lancer regiment – serving Lancers and former Lancers.

Whether a Lancer has served for thirty years, or one day, they had committed to serve their country, spending time away from their families or moving their family around the world – and been prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. Because of our respect for their service, we want to be here for them while on duty or on civvy street, in whatever capacity is most relevant to their lives.

We want to maintain a connection to all Lancers, whichever Lancer regiment they have served in, and help former Lancers to be connected to the Regimental Association and with each other.

This is something we have given great thought to over the last six months and have taken steps to be more proactive. We have engaged with a communications agency, Enthuse Communications, who will be working with us to build a plan for how we can make it easier for all Lancers to stay in touch and address how we make the Regimental Association more relevant to serving Lancers’ and veteran Lancers’ lives today.

Before we develop that plan further, it’s important that we know what you think. Enthuse has put together a survey to collect your views. The survey is anonymous, so please respond honestly with your true feelings.

Survey Details
The survey will close at midnight on Sunday 5th July 2020 and takes around 20 minutes to complete.

Please share the survey link with anyone you know who has served in a Lancer regiment, as we don’t have contact details for everyone. Likewise, because we are sharing this link widely – to give as many people as possible the chance to respond, we apologise if you have received it more than once.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts. We will share a summary of the results in the next six weeks.
