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.
Each year the Association holds reunions in the UK and Germany. The next UK reunion is to be held at Larkhill between the 7th and the 9th of June 2019. The Germany reunion will be confirmed later in the year.
