Welcome to the Artillery Clerks' Association website.

The Artillery Clerks' Association was formed at the Royal Artillery Barracks, Woolwich Garrison on Saturday 7th March 1998.

Providing a focal point, it is essentially an old comrades association of former Artillery Clerks, either serving or retired, promoting comradeship amongst its members.

Each year the Association holds reunions in the UK and Germany. The last UK reunion was held in the WO's & Sgts' Mess at Larkhill over the weekend 10-12th June 2022.

The next Reunion Dinner is to be held in the Central Sergeants' Mess, Larkhill on Saturday 24th June 2023. The Master Gunner, Lt Gen Sir Andrew Gregory KBE CB DL will be our Principal Guest of Honour. Further reunion information can be found on the Reunion Weekend page within this website.

Commemoration

The proud members of the Artillery Clerks' Association feel that a suitable way to honour the service of all of the thousands of Artillery Clerks since 1903, regardless of rank, would be to commission a silver centrepiece to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of the formation of the Association in 2023 and 120 years after the conception of the Artillery Clerks' Section in 1903.

The images shown above reflects a vision of the proposed future piece complete with details regarding piece size, markings, and annotations. Further details can be found via the Association Silver Piece Flier that was sent out to members earlier this year (2022).

The centrepiece will provide a permanent commemorative reminder of the Association and the service of its members, especially the value and high regard with which Artillery Clerks were held by their fellow gunners, officers and soldiers alike. This singular historic flagship of our contribution to the professionalism of the Royal Regiment will be securely housed, displayed and maintained with other regimental artifacts in the Central Sergeants' Mess at Larkhill Garrison, the new spiritual home of the Royal Artillery.

Fundraising Initiative

We have now launched an ambitious campaign to raise the funds needed to complete the final design and commission this new silver centrepiece in commemoration of our Association. To date £1500 has been granted from our own General Purpose Fund (GPF). In addition to this sum a further £2,175 has been raised from the RAA and individual donations (total so far £3,675). (Please note that Gift Aid will be claimed on individual contributions i.e. £100 donation will be worth £125 to the Silver Centre Piece Fund).

We are currently engaged in researched and targeted approaches to grant-making trusts and foundations, companies, community and professional associations, individuals and livery companies of the City of London.
