Desert Rats Association 1940s Dinner and Dance 2019


The Desert Rats Association, in support of the 7th Armoured Division Memorial Fund (Registered No. 1063575 under the Charities Act of 1960).



Grand County House Hotel Dinner and Dance

This year's theme was a 1940's Theme Dinner and Dance, to commemorate the links between the famous Desert Rats and Norfolk (which still exist), who were based nearby before sailing for the beaches of Normandy to take part in the momentous events of 1944. It was in aid of the Charity we support and to help raise funds towards the cost of planning and then  moving a Memorial for the Desert Rats from the Staff College of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to the National Arboretum, Staffordshire, and expanding the memorial to commemorate modern day Desert Rats.

More information about our plans regarding this can be seen here.

Many thanks to all who came to this year's event and made it such a great success. News of future events like this will be made available as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, photographs and videos of the event are now available here.


Many thanks

Desert Rats Association.
