The branch meets 1st Tuesday of each month at 8pm (except Jan & Aug) at the ex servicemens club North Road Parkstone (Poole). Average attendence is about 15 people. With the very high levels of ex RTR people in the area it really should be a bit more. Regular guest Speakers attend to keep the meetings varied and interesting, oh yes the beer is a lot cheaper than in the pub!! Recent Guest Speakers include, OC A Sqn 1 RTR (Warminster), Capt Livingstone 1 RTR (RAF Honnington). RSMI of the RAC Signal School, Maj Davies DRAC Centre on the future of the RAC. We even had the curator of the Tank museum telling us of the expansion of the museum with the aid of a lottery grant. That paricular night we were given some news that will shake every ex JLR to the core!!!. "Herman the German" is a myth!!!. No corpse was ever found in a Panzer at the museum, Para normal investgators have done whatever Para normal investigators do and no evidence of a "ghost" has ever been found. Well I for one don't believe a word of it!! Herman lives ok!! and generations of ex JLR's believe as well. If anyone wants anymore info then send me a PM. A few beers once a month with ex tankies, how about it?
