Our next Reunion is
8th – 10th Nov 2019
Havant Ex- Services Club.
There is one consistency that survives all the amalgamations, disbandment’s and other changes associated with our armed services, and that is comradeship. Time spent with service comrades is never forgotten. We are the regiment, the battery, the Corps. We make them what they are.
Feel free to contact us for information and membership..!Chris Morgan
