WELCOME TO NORTHERN IRELAND
Maintaining contact and friendships with former Corps members. An active branch that welcomes new members.
The Northern Ireland Branch of the Association is growing in numbers over the past few years and we would be delighted to welcome you whether you are a serving or previous member of our Corps. The Northern Ireland Branch mainly meet in the hub of Northern Ireland, Belfast, although our events have taken us all over NI. We have a variety of members; both serving Reservists, those who have since retired and we also welcome regular soldiers when serving in NI. Our Events Officer and committee work hard to ensure we can bring members together with activities appealing to all whether 22 or 82!
We welcome new faces to our Branch and ensure the spirit of friendship to all who join.
Currently, our Association membership affiliation is 23 retired, 21 serving reservists.
