Our regiment has reunions about 3 times a year. Last year we celebrated in Holland after 60 years they gave us a terrific welcome, on our visit to Holland we were met on the coach by a D.R a Daimler Dingo Car and a Heavy Humber armoured car and escorted to Helmont Castle for a celebration in Tilburg. Each veteran was allocated a war time vehicle and tour the city.

As far as I’m aware there is only one member of our regiment in Lincolnshire. He is Edwin Reetham, who lives near Louth. He is a retired farmer and has carved many reconnaissance planes for us and are displayed in All Hallows Church in London, in Helmont and Tilburg and The National Remembrance Chapel at Alrewan near Barton on Trent.
