Each year the Association holds a Reunion weekend at the Army Foundation College, Harrogate. This is a marvellous weekend in which members meet up with old pals to catch up on old times as well as the present.

The Friday evening is a social event in which members and their partners gather in one of the College’s messes for a few drinks, a buffet and more importantly to meet up with friends for a chat. Saturday morning starts with a church service to give thanks and remember those Apprentices that have departed. A tour of the current College (or other event) is followed by the AGM. Finally all members meet up for a meal and farewell drinks in one of the messes before setting off for home.
