We meet every fourth Thursday of the month at:
We meet at 1900hrs for the meeting to commence at 1930hrs. Meetings can last as long as an hour or less, subject to what needs to be discussed. After the meeting we either have a speaker who gives a talk on a variety of subjects or just retire to the bar for a drink and chat about old and new times.
Join your local RSAMembership of The RSA is open to any person – Regular, TA/Reserve, National Service, ATS, WRAC – who served with the Corps.
Started in 1996 we currently have about 30 members including some Associate Members from the Royal Engineers, the Royal Artillery and the Royal Air Force (we welcome new members from other Regiments and other armed Services) and we also have 3 Lady Associate Members lead by Mrs Margaret Howells who run our monthly Raffle and also regularly raise funds for the Association.
Our main priority is to provide a meeting point for friends with a mutual interest and to give essential support to our members and their families if and whenever required. The Committee organise trips whenever possible. Visits have included the Imperial War Museum, the RMCS and the JSCSC at the Defence Academy at Shrivenham. We have the odd quiz and buffet evening as well as an annual Christmas Dinner and Raffle in the TA Centre.
We advertise for new recruits to the Association by distributing posters throughout Swindon at local Clubs and Pubs, in the local newspaper and on the radio. Maintaining our numbers is difficult although we do keep in touch with some of our members in absentia because of ill health or distance.
