History of

the Association

RASC / RCT Association Scotland

 

There are six Association branches in Scotland.

 

Aberdeen, East Kilbride, Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow and the West of Scotland and Perthshire

Who can join the Association?

 

Anyone who has served in the RASC, the RCT or has been attached to units of the RASC or the RCT while serving in the REME, ATS or WRAC.  Former and serving members of the RLC will also be made most welcome.

 

Associate membership may be granted by Branches to people who have had long or special connections with either Corps or, in particular, with the Branch.

 

What does it cost?

 

Membership is very nominal and is well worth the cost.

 

Annual Membership - £1.00

 

Life Membership - £6.00

 

 

What can I put into it?

 

The benefits of Association membership depend, as always in such organisations, upon the contributions made by members in offering friendship, helping others, helping to run Branches by joining the committee and being a positive member.

 

If you valued the comradeship of your service in the Army and the standards achieved, help to maintain them by joining your local Branch.

 

Contact details for each branch are on the branch webpages.  Alternatively use the "Contact us" button at the top of this page.

Chairman’s Message

 

I would like to thank Benny McHale, Vice Chairman and Willie Miller, Secretary /Treasurer of the Region for all their hard work and support over the last year.  

I would also like to thank all the Branch Chairmen and their Committees for their continued commitment to the Branch and the Association as a whole.

We must not forget all the support from the members of the branches without whom the Association would founder.

Last year was a busy year for functions as usual the Regional Dance was successful due to being so well supported, hopefully this support will continue in the future.

The various branches have all held functions many of which Benny and I have been delighted to attend.

We both hope to visit as many branches as possible in 2018.

Wishing All members of the Association and their Families a very Happy and prosperous New Year.

 

Duncan Forbes

Scottish Chairman
