 Severn Branch Christmas Dinner was held in December with 32 members, wives, widows and guests in attendance. I special award was made to Stan Knipe for 25 yrs branch service by Mike Cornwall


 

In December 39 members, wives, widows, and guests of the Severn Branch of the RGBW Association held their annual Christmas Luncheon at the Dog at Over. This year the branch had a special guest, Colonel Mike Cornwall, who is the UK Chairman of the Association attending. A good time was had by one and all with the vow to do it all again next year.
Colonel Cornwall had been invited along to present a well-earned award to Mr Stan Knipe for 25 years branch service. Stan is a founder member of the Severn Branch which was started as a Regimental Association for the Royal Berkshire Regiment which Stan, along with many other local “lads” served. Stan has held every committee role during his time with the branch and only stood down as treasurer last year to start a well-earned retirement, but he will still be keeping a watchful eye over all things to do with the branch . Stan is also credited with keeping alive the Maiwand parade in Reading in July each year which remembers the gallantry of soldiers of the Royal Berks in Afghanistan in the 19th century.

 

The RGBW Association Severn Branch is a thriving old comrades association for members of regiments which have been amalgamated into its current incarnation, The Rifles, We welcome ex-members from the Gloucester’s, Berkshires, Wiltshire’s, RGBW, Wessex Regiments and also the Rifles to come along to our branch meetings which are held throughout the year at the Saintbridge Rugby Club.
