The RAA AGM and Annual Dinner is once again being held at The King Charles Hotel, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 5QT on Saturday 16th into Sunday 17th of May
for those who wish to stay the night and attend the Dinner after the AGM. The Hotel has allowed people booking to pay by post-dated cheques this year,
which removes a lot of the pain of paying up front in one go. We have also managed to keep the costs for the Dinner to within £2 of last year's
prices and look forward to seeing as many members and wives or partners there as possible.

The Remembrance Day Parade takes place at 1030 at the Rhodesian Plot outside St Margaret's Church.
Afterwards, we gather for luncheon at the London Novatel, Waterloo.
Our time is now a long time ago, and the material on this web site is used for research by descendents of many of our members. To that end it would be useful if all of you would find your Unit's pages here, and see if you have anything useful to add. In particular, we need course photographs, particularly with names, and Roll of Honour Information. Unit dates of formation and dissolution are also needed. Do not send original photographs by post. All material may be sent to the Web Master. Please compress photos scans before sending, to an 800 pixels wide image, if you know how. They are also better sent uncompressed than not at all.
