Desert Rats Association



March 2012

I can hardly believe that we are in to 2012; this is really going to be a busy year with the Golden jubilee and the Olympics.

At the last meeting Mr. .Scott informed me meeting that he had changed the Associations name to The Desert Rat Association. He has done this in the hope of getting more support from those serving at the current time.

Mr. Scott has also asked if members could update us with their contact information, we have noticed that few members have moved on and have not sent us their change of address; We would also like to know if you served in me Desert. If you could please include this along with your subscription fees this year. 

The date of this year's Open day has been set for Sunday June 24th. Help will be needed in all the usual areas. 

The date for the AGM will be set at the next meeting. 

Remembrance Day drew a large meeting of over 300 scooters from me club who has made it an annual event to visit the Memorial for 11.00am, what a wonderful turnout. The service at 2.00pm although well attended, was down in numbers compared to previous years. Work is now on hand to get the second Nissan hut up and running, within the next 18 months, we will keep you updated with its progress.

Mr. Scott's trip to Egypt with a group of veterans in October went very well, we understand all who went had a good time, and will remember the experience for a long time.

The next Association meeting will be held on MONDAY 5th March 2012 at 10.00am in the Schoolroom, Forest headquarters, Santon Downham, Brandon, Suffolk. This date had to be changed from February due to Forest enterprise commitments.
