Association Dinner 2023

Our annual branch dinner, The Terry Crowley Memorial Dinner was held on Saturday 22 April 2023.


We had the pleasure of Brig Jez Lamb and his wife Dr Lucy Lamb as our special guests this year. We also welcomed back or chair, Lt Col Keith Kiddie, who on the eve of last years' event, suffered a life threatening fall at his home.


Thankfully Keith looks very much his old self as can be seen in the photo above with Brig Lamb.


The evening was all the more special as Korean veteran Peter Galloway was awarded The Regimental Medal of Merit for his outstanding work as Standard Bearer for the association.

Welcome to our website and hope that you find it interesting and informative. Although this Association was originally started for ex 1st Bn servicemen (hence the White Hackle), we warmly welcome both serving and former members of RRF to our wonderful Association room at HM Tower of London.


If you are still not a member then this is your chance to find old friends and to make new ones.


The Association has five reunions a year, all at the Tower of London, along with a special reunion for Korean veterans.


A special Vintage lunch (over 80's) is also held in September.
