When anyone passes to the 'Green Fields' RHQ have a Coffin Drape in RTR colours for use at the Funeral, there is also a CD available of My Boy Willie. All we ask is that a donation of £10.00 (minimum) be made to the RTR Benevolent Fund to cover the cost of postage. Please contact the Regimental Secretary Colin Hepburn on 01929 403331.
If anyone knows when a member of the Regiment passes to the Green Fields, please inform the Regimental Secretary Colin Hepburn then his name can be entered on this site on the "To The Green Fields" page.
If any of the Association Branches would like to have photos published in the Gallery. Please e-mail your photos to the Regimental Secretary Colin Hepburn firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to hear a short burst of the Regimental Marches, click on Media Audio and you can hear 25 seconds of your selected tune. Only 25 seconds due to copyright restrictions. Unfortunatley this CD is no longer in production.
On behalf of serving RTR personnel, RTRA members & RTR RHQ staff, I am delighted to confirm that
Lest We Forget Battlefield Tours (Flanders) are still able to offer free battlefield pilgrimage/touring around the old Ypres Salient battlefields in Belgium (provided we are available to your required date request of course) otherwise long term planning will be much more successful for the date(s) required.
Our company vehicle seats 4 passengers maximum however, convoy style in own vehicles or coach step on guide service are all possible options. Limited WW2 input is also possible.
Accommodation and transportation is not included however advice & recommendations most certainly are FOC.
For more information please see here: http://www.lestweforgettours.com/
We can also arrange inclusion into the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing Last Post Ceremony http://lastpost.be/ if requested.
I also wish to remind all that the TANK MEMORIAL YPRES SALIENT enjoys it's own dedicated annual ceremony under the guidance and assistance of Honorary President Lt General (Retd) David Leakey CMG CBE, Lt Col (Retd) Geoffrey Vesey-Holt MBE and the memorial's mostly on location governing committee. Input via RTR RHQ is also available whenever possible.
I am also delighted to confirm that the above is already included within the RTRA Nottingham Branch annual calendar and we look forward to welcoming them back again later in the year. Please do not hesitate to contact their Branch Secretary Brian Rogers for reports on previous visits/attendances.
Both myself and Milena look forward to receiving you during your battlefield pilgrimage/touring, TMYS attendances and it's annual ceremonies.
