LATEST HOT NEWS
Our Spring Event is booked but numbers will be limited. To make it fair I am not putting details on the site until the magazine has gone out to all members. My advice, if you want to attend, book as soon as you get the form. After a week has gone by, call me to check if you can still attend.
Exhibitions, services of Remembrance and many events are being held to commemprate the Centenary of WW1. Information on these is coming in very often and it is not always possible for me to update the website quickly. Do join our facebook page for fast updates.
I am especially eager to hear from members who see details of an event they could attend, please contact me if you are able. We hope to have a Machine Gun Corps Old Comrades' Association presence at as many as possible.
Please remember that events require a lot of time and work and they are arranged for you to enjoy, do make the effort to attend and make a quick note in your diary RIGHT NOW so you don't forget. Meet lovely people and visit interesting places.
Next event: Spring Event will be in Swindon on Saturday, 9th April, 2016.
Annual Observance & Luncheon will be held on Saturday, 14th May, 2016.
See events page for details & booking forms. If you have any problems downloading a form, just ensure you send full names of you and all your guests, your contact telephone number, preferably a mobile, and the appropriate cheque to me
For a list of countries overseas where Graves are wanted for our Photographic Project, please see below. If you can help, we will be grateful, contact Judith for details.
Articles and photographs are very welcome for the next edition of Emma Gee. The magazine is only as good as members make it by sending in interesting copy.
Please help Judith by ensuring that you use Times New Roman 10 point, no indents, 'no prettying up' please. Ensure article and photograph file names link and make sense to others, not just you, e.g. name files '1234 Pt Fred Bloggs'. Making file names such as 'Dad' or 'Grandad in Mespot' will mean absolutely nothing to me if they become detached from your email, waste hours of time and may mean they will not be included!! Thank you for your help.
The MGC/OCA has a Facebook page, take a look.
Have a chat, get others to join up, communicate.
