Centenary Events

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.

***

Anything to do with memberships should go to Keith Stephenson. The membership form has his address.

***

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.

***

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.

The MGC/OCA has a Facebook page, take a look.

Have a chat, get others to join up, communicate.

Graham Sacker is able to assist with your research enquiries.
