Welcome to our website and hope that you find it interesting and informative. Although this Association was originally started for ex 1st Bn servicemen (hence the White Hackle), we warmly welcome both serving and former members of RRF to our wonderful Association room at HM Tower of London.
If you are still not a member then this is your chance to find old friends and to make new ones.
The Association has five reunions a year, all at the Tower of London, along with a special reunion for Korean veterans. See the events page for 2014 diary dates.
Our well supported reunions at The Tower of London are the backbone of the Association.
Next reunion is Friday 5th September 2014 at 7pm.
A special Korean reunion lunch at the Tower was held on Friday 11 July.
When Harry met.....Bert and John. Prince Harry met Bert Mayle and veteran of Italy John Dudley at a reception marking the 70th anniversary of Monte Cassino. Thanks to George Rose who took these wonderful photos.
The story of the trip can be found on the 'Tours' page.
Poppies at the Tower
To commemorate the outbreak of WW1, 888,246 ceramic poppies will be “planted” in the moat during July and August. Each poppy represents one of the fallen, to create a unique art installation which will be on display until 11 November 2014. The poppies will then be available for sale to the public and the net proceeds will go to the charities involved.

Our members have enjoyed a busy summer, whether at Wimbledon (weather not so summer), Chelsea Hospital or Buckingham Palace. Full stories and more photos on the 'news' page.
