: I post not to just stay in touch with time served Veterans, but to notify the none branch or none Association connected military family what is going on,the Regiment has through sands of time has sadly dwindled from Battalion strength to COY strength, we are probably at platoon strength with honoured sections (silent ones),notification like I'm not going to this or that event respectively doesn't help the military family as the main reason for a reunion is to come together as served brothers in arms and meet that one person we have not seen in years ,reunions are getting smaller and change is happening but the Association is trying to address this but need input, sorry to say but they dont have the military family bond that we that are left have, Branches could do more to support each other and enjoy social gatherings,
: The formal and social gathering on St George's Day (24th) was hoping to be more of a reunion date bringing ex services and wives partners ,families together, in this coronation year, keep talking keep the site vibrant with your comments telling offs are allowed but most of all
: STAY FRIENDS ?
Thatís all well and good but you forget the fact that as we get older we are less able to travel.
A reunion is not top of the list when travelling is difficult or expensive.
Some of us are Still able to holiday which is not easy.
You talk about us as a family our family is bigger than what appears on this site the majority of our family use social media .
I for one donít travel any distance nowadays.
The regiment should pay more attention not to social media but to this site and the one that Les runs.
This site is far more useful than putting on a blazer and Tie and travelling to distant reunions
Hats off to Chichester you have a lot living in the area travelling not a real problem.
My message to the regiment get real thereís a lot more reading and speaking on the two sites than go to reunions
