About BUSC

BUSCLA LogoThe British United Services Club of Los Angeles was organized in 1935 by a group of former British officers and other residents of Southern California of British birth. It is a non-profit club that promotes camaraderie between British and Commonwealth citizens, including persons who have served in the British and Commonwealth armed forces, and allied American forces.

We meet monthly, usually on the third Friday of the month, at the Altadena Town & Country Club. Our mess protocol requires gentlemen, including guests, to wear military mess dress uniform, tuxedo with black tie, or formal highland dress, with appropriate miniature medals. Ladies are expected to attend in military mess dress uniform or other appropriate evening attire. All meetings are dinner meetings with a variety of informative and entertaining speakers.

“Neither the sure prevention of war, nor the continuous rise of world organization will be gained without what I have called the fraternal association of the English-speaking peoples ...a special relation-ship between the British Commonwealth and Empire and the United States.“

Winston Churchill

The British United Services Club of Los Angeles is a dynamic, member-based, non-profit club dedicated to fostering the friend-ship that exists between the British Commonwealth of Nations and the United States of America in the hope that this friendship might be preserved for all time.


Membership is by invitation only.  An invitation will be extended only after the prospective member is invited to Club meetings by a current member and properly introduced.
