Saltcoats AFVBC

A few members of the Saltcoats Veteran

Breakfast Club recently attended

an army engagement presentation

and reception called “Your Army” at

Ayr Racecourse. The event was an

opportunity to find out a bit about the

British Army and what it has been up

to, and to ask questions of a senior


Ayreshire AFVBC

With 290 members, the Ayrshire Breakfast Club continues to grow from

strength to strength. Often heading to the local Legion for a games

afternoon once their bellies are full.

City of Glasgow Branch recently received the Royal Marines

Freedom of Glasgow.

Freedom of the City is an honour given by a local council, for

example, to either a person (civilian) or military unit, in recognition

of their exceptional service to the City. It’s one of our oldest

surviving traditional ceremonies.
