    A little bit more information regarding the Ladies Guest Night. Our Chairman has been liaising with Lyneham site security and around 25 car park places have been reserved in the front of the Mess. The coach and any additional cars will need to park next to the Community Centre. All details for the nominal roll need to be with the Chairman by 24th September.

    A bit more news from our President.

    Arrangements for our Ladies Guest Night in the Princess Marina Mess at MOD Lyneham, which is now home to the Defence School of Electronic & Mechanical Engineering (DSEME) run by REME. This Mess – termed a ‘Combined Mess’ – is the former RAF Lyneham’s WOs & Sgts Mess, now much up-graded according to our Chairman & Treasurer who have made a recce to meet the Mess Manager etc.

    The evening function will take place at Lyneham, as mentioned above. We have been fortunate enough to get Colonel Stuart Tootal DSO OBE to speak after dinner. He has very kindly agreed to waive his usual fee in return for a donation by the Association to his “3 Para Afghan Trust Charity”.

    Your Committee anticipates a big turn-out for our nostalgic return to Lyneham. We do hope you will be able to attend what should be a truly memorable evening.

The code to quote is there but note T’s and C’s for anyone having to cancel at short notice because of the non-refundable/non transferable rules apply. We have not had any offers from the near by Holiday Inn Express yet.
