And, IIRC, one man was a member of both the VC & GC Association and the Ejection Tie Club, namely Grp Capt Len Trent. I believe that he had at least one ejection to his name post-war...

You have to be:

gutless
spineless
liar
shag any thing that moves
smile like someone with a mouthfull of spunk.

in general being an ex-officer opens many doors!

The good looking birds that airfix shagged but didn't have to pay for is a pretty exclusive club.

The RCC isn't particularly exclusive. The Royal Yacht Squadron Flying Club on the other hand... You first get elected to the Squadron (a spare squillion in the bank won't help you), then you get elected to the Flying Club. At the last count there were about 10 members.

Leander Club is not particularly exclusive, no matter what they might pretend - the more members they can gather, the more money they have to spend on rowing. Hence lots of members after somewhere to drink once a year and a nasty pink tie. I'm not sure how that deserves to be quoted in the same list as the VC and GC Association.

Both the Caterpillar Club and the Guinea Pig club have rather a stronger claim to exclusivity than Leander, methinks.

Whites
The Guinea Pig Club
Caterpiller Club
RAF Escaping Society
Goldfish Club (not sure if this was US aircrew in Britain or RAF)

Wasn't there some sort of home run club for escapees, (all services)?

BASE jumpers, (Building, antenna, span, earth) not realy a club, more of a loose collection of barking lunatics who ought to be locked away together for their own safety.

So true, they're the GITCIGAK Club (Get In The Car I've Got A Knife Club)!!!

I'd love to say your mum's one of them, but as we both know, she ain't fit to fcuk let alone fit to be seen in public with!!!

:D

The Parachute Regimental Association. ( PRA )

Must have past, P Company and Basic Parachute Course.
Would the numbers involved not tend to make it a select club rather than an exclusive one perhaps?
