The British Element Trieste Force Association

Thanks to newspaper editors up and down the country the British Element Trieste Force Association has recruited 40 new members over the past 21 months.

This Association was formed in 2002 for those ex-servicemen who served in the Free Territory of Trieste from 1945 and 1954. In addition to the veterans, average age 86, we welcome family members as associates, some of whom spent time in Trieste as children.

Photographs and memories are published in a quarterly magazine and further information is available on the association website. Regional meetings are held in various parts of the country.

The 2017 annual reunion this year will be in Cardiff over the weekend of Friday/Saturday/Sunday 17/18/19 March. The reunion takes place each year at different places.

If you are interested in joining please get in touch with me by phone on 01665 589289,by email or write to Suilven, Ellingham. Chathill. Northumberland NE67 5HA.

David Griggs (Membership Secretary).
