Welcome to the Artillery Clerks' Association website.

This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Artillery Clerks' Association, which was formed at Woolwich on Saturday 7th March 1998.

Providing a focal point, it is essentially an old comrades association of former Artillery Clerks, either serving or retired, promoting comradeship amongst its members.

The Artillery Clerks' Association is affiliated to and is a branch of the Royal Artillery Association (RAA). All members of the Artillery Clerks' Association are granted life membership of the RAA on acceptance.

PROPOSED GERMANY REUNION

Ron Holmes is looking to organise a small Germany Reunion dinner later this year for AC's and their partners. The idea is to host the dinner in the Bauernhof Museum in Senne in September.

There are some reasonably priced B&B's in the local area for those that wish to make it over from UK. The trip over could possibly combine with a few days around Germany with your partner.

Further details will be given by Ron at the up-coming Reunion Weekend.

Please contact Ron at crossedquills@gmail.com or direct via our Facebook page should you require further details or show an interest at this stage.
