QARANC Association Reunion Lunch rescheduled to Saturday 28 April 2018.  Time and venue remain the same.

Branches and trustees were consulted and the overwhelming preference was to move from May to April. Our apologies to those who were able to come and now no longer can, but faced with the potential travel disruption and people’s keenness to watch the royal wedding there was a risk that the lunch would have been very poorly attended.

Existing bookings – RHQ will contact you directly.  New bookings – Branch secretaries have the new booking form or amend existing one by hand.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Any queries please contact the Regimental Secretary.
