Somerset Branch Rifles and RGBW Regimental Association
Somerset Branch meetings are held quarterly at the Royal British Legion Club, 29 Old Main Rd. Pawlett, Nr. Bridgwater , TA6 4RY. [Near J23 M5]
We are a Countywide Branch with members travelling long distances, some from Devonshire and South Gloucestershire. Therefore we meet in daylight hours on a Sunday morning. 1030hrs for coffee and commence the meeting at 1100hrs. Many of our ladies attend and meet socially with the other wives. We round off the meeting with an excellent modestly priced lunch. Most important the ale is cheap! We are here to welcome you so why not come along for a chat, swing the lamp and enjoy a pint...or two!
