July Meeting Branch Meeting - The Branch meeting for July will take place on Friday the 6th July at the TA Centre, Church Place, Swindon Wilts, at 1900hrs for a 1930hrs start

REA Branch Dinner 2018 - This year the REA Swindon Dinner is being held at the Double Tree By Hilton Hotel, Swindon and we want your support by getting family and friends to attend. We are holding costs to £30 per person. A deposit of £5 per head is required. Attendance forms are at the end of the newsletter and should be returned to Tony Busson or Bob Tapping.

Skittles Night - The skittles night took place on Friday 18th May, and a good night was had by all. The Ladies winner was Joanne Ruddle and the Men’s winner was Ritchie Hean. A big thanks goes to Bob for his hard work which went into making it a very enjoyable evening, and also to Reece for replacing the skittles all-night. The raffle table was once again very good, so well done to the Ladies.

Armed Forces Day - Armed Forces Day celebrations will be held in Swindon next month. Faringdon Road Park will be packed with stalls, food and entertainment on Saturday June 23rd from 11am to 5pm. Organizers promise a marching band, military history displays, a fairground, plenty of music and dance, and more throughout the day. Something special is also in the pipeline to mark the 100th anniversary of the RAF. Please come alone and support the branch and any help would be much appreciated.

REA Mangaement Committee - The Hon Sec has the minutes of this meeting. Items include Benevolence, Regimental Colonel’s Report on The Corps, Families Events, Badge of Merit Awards, REA Rules Amendments, Group Structure Review and Branch Matters.

South West BBQ - The Group BBQ along with the Standard Bearers Competition will be held at 22 Engineer Regiment WO & Sgts Mess on Saturday 7th July. The price for the BBQ is £12. Names to the Sec by the 14th June please as I have to get the numbers to group by the 20th June.

Double Hills - Just to remind you about the Annual Commemoration, remembering the first casualties of Arnhem when a Horsa glider crashed at Paulton shortly after taking off. We will probably go individually this year, so if you are going and have space, or you want to go and need a lift, please let the Hon Sec know.
