A brief introduction to the 26th Regiment Royal Artillery Association from our Secretary :
First and foremost, I would like to welcome you to the 26 Regiment Royal Artillery Association website. As you will discover there is a host of different types of web pages for you to explore, find out what has been going on and what is coming up in the foreseeable future.
The association came about when a couple of ex-members of the Regiment reunited their friendship and acquaintance in 1993, at Blackpool. From this meeting a temporary committee was formed by Brian Henderson and then the work commenced trying to get in touch with other ex-members of the Regiment to find out if they would be interested in getting together for a weekend.
With great success and astonishment the 1st official reunion was held a year later at the Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool on the 26th November 1994. A total of 500 people attended the reunion and this support is still going strong some 18 years later.
This association has only been successful because of the total commitment the committee members “past and present” have given over the years, listening to these members it hasn't been unproblematic, but it has been worth every minute of their valuable time.
If you wish to become a member you can do this by clicking the "Members" page and fill in all of your details as requested on the online form and clicking submit. This will be sent to our Secretary for his administration.
Donations can also be made to the Secretary by either cheque or cash at reunions.
The reunions are held once every two years and the next one being in 2016, so if you wish to attend, please keep yourself up-to-date with what is going on by this means, as we the committee will endeavor to keep in touch with other members preferably by emails or post etc.
The success of this association is purely down to its members, not individuals and I believe the association will continue to be successful for many years, as long as the members give their support. On that final note, I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Executive Committee to wish you every success in whatever you are doing and good health. Look forward to meeting you all in 2016.
