About the Branch
The RSA Lincoln Branch formed out of a 'get together' by the late Frank Philp in May 1976. Permission to form a 'Lincoln Branch' was given by the RHQ on 27th May 1976, and the inaugural meeting was held on 9th August 1976 in the TAVR Drill Hall, Newport, Lincoln.
The Branch currently has 28 members, not just from Lincoln, but from all parts of the county including, Immingham, Scunthorpe, Sleaford, Louth and Horncastle.
We are a small but active branch, thanks to our Entertainments Officers, John Hudson & Phil Staples, who organise our dinners, lunches and visits.
We also enjoy a close relationship with the Lincoln Branch of the Parachute Regt Association, who hold their meetings on the same night as ours. So afterwards we all get together in the bar for a convivial evening.
We meet the first Thursday of every month with the exception of the month of JANUARY, and AUGUST at Sobraon Barracks, Burton Road, Lincoln.
The meetings are held in the Keep, at 1930hrs. Meet in the bar at 1900hrs.
However, in the Winter months (November to February),we meet at the same location but at 1130 hrs.
All serving and ex-members of the Corps are welcome, along with any ex-WRAC ladies who were attached to the Corps.
Membership is an annual payment of £10.
