With the winding down of the Glider Pilot Regimental Association, the Glider Pilot Regiment Society for Family, Heritage and Remembrance has started up to provide veterans, their relatives and other interested parties with a forum to celebrate the history of this incredible regiment, socialise, educate and participate in remembrance activities. Membership of the Society is now open.
Annual subscription rates have been set at the same as those for the Glider Pilot Regimental Association. The subscriptions will be used for a number of benefits for members and for friends of the society including:
Subscriptions will also be used to fund wreaths to leave at remembrance events and current and future projects which we as a society will be working on. For further information on our projects please click here.
There are four categories of membership:
Veteran Membership (£15): For those veterans of the Glider Pilot Regiment and RAF veterans who piloted Gliders on operations or had involvement in training or other aspects of the Regiment.
Full Membership (£20): For relatives of Glider Pilots and RAF Glider Pilots.
Friends of the Society (£20): For veterans and current members of the Army Air Corps and any other parties who have a genuine interest in the heritage of the Regiment.
Family Membership (£30): Any person applying for membership of any category who wants to add family members who reside at the same address may do so for £10 extra. Each family member will be treated as an individual member of the society and each will receive a membership card (posted to one address). However, families will receive one copy of each issue of the magazine to share.
To join, please complete the form on the contact us page of our website or e-mail email@example.com.
Please note: Any member under the age of 18 and Friends of the Society will not be permitted to serve on the committee or vote at the Society’s AGM. In all other aspects they will have the same entitlements as full members.
