Bombadier Bear had a great day out today with his friends from Canterbury Branch RAA
He visited 12 Regt RA at Thorney Island where he was entertained and pictured with some of their kit
After a couple of drinks in the Sgts Mess he let his standards slip by climbing on a gun in the foyer
Many thanks to members of 12 Minden Bty and T Bty for looking after us all so well.We all enjoyed the day greatly!!!...

The Tyneside Scottish Branch recently attended a Beating of Retreat at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland as the guests of Northumbria Army Cadet Force.
The Branch have been active in assisting the ACF, raising over £10,000 and taking them on trips to the WW1 Battlefields, Normandy and the Imperial War Museum in London. After a marching display by the Casino Band of Northumbria ACF, the Castle echoed to the skirl of the pipes.

On 16th July a team comprising of Sgt Craig Neill, Bdr Tanya Parry and Bdr Shane Gascoigne of 57 (Bhurtpore) Bty RA visited their RAA affiliated branch in Ramsgate and put on a stirring presentation on past and present life in their battery, including operational tours and current equipment.
The presentation was so professional it inspired many questions from the audience, most of which
were answered over a drink and curry buffet!

It was another hugely successful day at the NMA for the Royal Artillery Service of Remembrance.
The Royal Artillery Association were joined by over 550 Veterans and serving Soldiers from the Royal Regiment who came to pay their respects to those that have gone before. As with every year, the weather permitted us to enjoy the sunshine and the wonderful setting that is the Arboretum.
