General Secretary Col Vere Nicoll visited the 1st Tynemouth Volunteer Artillery Association Branch on the 21st October 2014. A delightful evening was had by all with drinks and a three course meal. Colonel Middleton introduced the evening followed by a speech from Col Vere Nicoll about the RAA and RA Charitable Fund. The Northumberland Cadet band played very well. After speeches there was a 'Roll Call' where every member's name was called out and they stood. Drinks followed in the bar and some settled in for the long haul!
