PT BRANCH REUNION: 24-26 OCT :

 
Thanks to the fine efforts of the current AIPTRM, WO1 Mick Seabrook RM, we are all set for a very special PT Branch Reunion to be held on the weekend of 24-26 October 2014 at CTCRM. As the corps celebrates its 350th birthday, we are very fortunate to have secured this weekend for our own special bi-annual get-together with our former colleagues and to see how our high standards are being maintained by the current serving PTI’s.

Please support us by attending!

Peter Brown MBE MSc. (Hon Chairman RM PT Reunion Club)

A VERY SPECIAL YEAR!

To celebrate the Corp’s 350th year (1664-2014) we have already been very privileged to attend several memorable occasions.

On Sunday 18th May, we had one of the best attended Graspan Parades ever, with over 500 serving and RMA members marching down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace behind the fine Royal Marines band, in glorious sunshine! This was followed by a wonderful Corps Reception at the Old Billingsgate Market.

This was followed on 4th June by the Beating Retreat on Horse Guards Parade by The Massed Bands of HM Royal Marines. This was a fully subscribed event and we all enjoyed a very impressive band display that only the Corps can provide and the salute was taken by HRH Prince Philip, our Captain General. This was also followed by a corps reception in The Palace of Westminster.

On Sunday 13 July, we witnessed the very well-supported 25th anniversary of the IRA bombing of the young Royal Marines Bandsmen at Deal in 1989 by a very special concert (provided by two Royal Marines bands this year) held on The Strand in Deal. This event is incredible, with an estimated 10,000 people attending and every inch of the green taken up! A very poignant and memorable event that ensured that "we will remember them".

We have just held the Royal Marines 350th Anniversary March through the City of London, with over 700 serving and former Royal Marines marching “with bayonets fixed and flags flying” through London to The Guildhall, where the salute was taken by The Lady Mayor of London. This was a very impressive parade that further enhanced the prestige of the corps. It was followed by a grand reception held in the historic Guildhall for everyone that marched.

We now have the RMA weekend (20/21 September) to be held at CTCRM, which should see a very large turnout this year.

Then we have our own very special event, the PT Branch Reunion to be held on the weekend of 24-26 October 2014. Application forms have been sent out and places are being taken up fast, with the serving PT Branch pulling out all the stops to provide a super weekend! If you haven’t already sent in your application form, please do so soonest in order to avoid disappointment!

We look forward to seeing you!

Peter Brown.
