It is marvellous that that we are now able to meet up together. A few photos from July’s AGM and Annual Lunch can be found here.
Please watch this space for details of all our updated plans for 2021 and 2022.
I look forward to seeing you at a future Association event – the next chance will be Loos Sunday in September.
Please continue to stay safe !

Contactable directly by eMail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Support may be available to serving and former members of the Regiment and their dependents. Grants are not made to settle debts and, while not all claims are accepted, a fairly generous approach is adopted in most cases. Those who are eligible and finding themselves in need of support or are now in straitened financial circumstances due to the present pandemic should consider an application. All claims are dealt with promptly and confidentially.
