Welcome to the Artillery Clerks' Association website.
The Artillery Clerks' Association 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.
