We Remember and Honour those who went before


Our researchers work tirelessly to uncover our history for future generations.

Our Mission

Ensuring the History and Sacrifice of the Portsmouth Region is preserved

Originally set up in partnership with Portsmouth Football Club to produce a lasting memorial to the Portsmouth Battalions, the POMPEY PALS CHARITY is now a ‘stand alone’ organisation which aims to commemorate all those men and women who served the Portsmouth Region in any capacity, whether at home or abroad.

Share your family’s story

We are always happy to hear from anyone who had family members who served.
