Were you there?

On Tuesday 14th June 2022 the Royal British Legion will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands Conflict at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire. All applications to attend must be made via the RFA Asssociation, ie me as the designated representative by email:- falklands40@rfaa.uk . or telephone 01833 640045

I will manage all applications by veterans , RFA and Stonnery for the event providing they are members of the RFA Association, Serving RFA or retired RFA and not members of the RFA Association. In the latter two cases I might ask for verification of their status as RFA verterans, appropriate discharge book page or the like as there application will be going under the good name of the RFA Association and I do not want to submit the name of non veterans ie. “Walts” . The closing date for submissions is late April so there is plenty of time but the sooner you apply the better

If you are intending to attend this event and need local accomodation I strongly suggest you book it now, my spies tell me there is a lot of interest already in local hotels already and you may need to seek accomodation in Lichfield https://www.booking.com/searchresults.en-gb.html?aid=303948;label=lichfield-TFUseF2xGbfm6G_BpMUaxAS525562401973%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap15%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap%3Aneg%3Afi%3Atikwd-4628213421%3Alp1006688%3Ali%3Adec%3Adm%3Appccp%3DUmFuZG9tSVYkc2RlIyh9Yf5EcukO1MOGLSSAuId8ToA;sid=febebbb4b0cc07dbcb051e2f39229985;city=-2601098;redirected=1;redirected_from_city=1;source=city&.
