The next meeting of the Swindon PRA Sunday 28th January 2018 @ 12.00.


At the AGM in 2015 it was decided that in the light on continuing falling attendance, it is the Chairmans  view that the PRA should scale down the Branch activities, hold just 2 minuted meetings per year, the AGM and one other, then a social event in between, so we would get together every 3 months.



Remembrance Sunday. Members to meet at Granville St Car Park at 10.15



Branch Ties are available at a cost of £20 each - see Merv Jones.

They are only available to Branch members and Honorary Members.


At the last meeting on Weds 8 February 2017...


The branch members held a successful Christmas social at Swindon Dog track.


3 Members, attended a visit to SFSG in St Athan in December. It was very enjoyable and gave a great insight into how our Airborne forces operate and the equipment they use. A night in the mess for a curry, a pint and a chat with the boys followed.


A vote of thanks was proposed by Tony Ellis and seconded by Steve Hickey to thank Colin “Satch” Comley for his service to the branch, for his duties as Standard bearer and for organizing many collection days, raising funds.


The Wroughton Gosling VC event is on Sunday 2nd April 10.00 for 10.30 at the church, there is no parking at the church, so park close to the War memorial as that is where the parade ends. For Standard bearers there is a rehearsal at 16.30 on Friday 31st March.
