The Crown Club is an informal term used to denote the semi-regular meeting of officers of the rank of Major at Regimental Duty. The meetings are a good way to discuss policy and any issues that may me causing a degree of concern. These act as a good way to stimulate 2 way flow of information around the Regiment without necessarily interfering with the CO's ability to command.

ARRSE has its very own Crown Club here. Access can be arranged for those so entitled by approaching the relevant Moderators.
