Rememberance Sunday 11th November 2018 from Paul Saynor

“Where are you parading on the 11th?”

It is 100 years since the end of the 1st World War and it is becoming more important as each year passes that we remember the reasons why Rememberance Day takes place. I shall be joining the Serving members and Veterans parading at Portsmouth Guildhall on Sunday, we meet up in the Guildhall for a cup of tea/coffee before hand at approximately 1000 and I would love to see any member who would like to take part. I appreciate that many of you get involved in the services around the country so why not use this forum to let other people who may be close by and looking to join in.

Addition of Photos from the 2018 Reunion

I have now published a number of galleries (within the photo gallery menu) of the 2018 reunion.  Please have a look and any constructive comments please comment to this post.

A massive thank you to Nick Lee for the content of the 2018 galleries, he acted as the unofficial photographer on the weekend and in particular on the gala night and I think you will agree did a fantastic job.  Nick has also kindly sent me photos from previous Reunions and these I will add over the next month or so.

If anybody has any relevant photos they want added to the galleries please send them to me in JPEG format to webmaster@rncca.org.uk

Thanks

Reunion 2018 – Aberfoyle, Scotland

Great weekend had by all in the ‘Trossachs’.  Photos will be appearing in the galleries very soon.  Thanks to Brian for organising the weekend and special thanks to Jackie from Isle of Wight tours for putting it all together – ‘Best yet’ was repeated several times.  Thanks also to our guest of Honour Captain Craig Mearns and his wife Leslie.  His address was  enjoyable and witty  and both showed us how Scottish dancing should be done!! The critique from the two man band and teaching team for the rest of us was interesting, in summary and for comparison purposes there last gig had been at a Nursery for 3 – 5 years olds and we came second  😕

New Link added – Allcallsigns

Too many servicemen, women and veterans have no one
to talk to when life gets tough. We’re changing that.
All Call Signs is a peer-to-peer chat service, manned exclusively by
volunteers who have experienced life in uniform. If you need to talk, head
to allcallsigns.org and we’ll connect you to someone who has been there,
done that and got the tour shirt. It is not weak to feel down once in a while
and talking about it can make all the difference, so start now.
