Garrison Artillery Volunteers

A display group whose passion is Royal Artillery of the 20th Century

We are always interested in welcoming new members to join us in The Garrison Artillery Volunteers. As a member you will get to experience and take part in various events throughout the year.

Every member within the group is an important cog whether in a team of gunners or in the searchlight detachment. Full training is given and the group hold training weekends throughout the year to hone skills.

There is no pressure to attend every event or to talk to the public when you attend. There are already many within the group who are happy to do this.

There are no weekly or monthly meetings ... we all get together at events and communicate via email and facebook.  We hold a yearly AGM in either December or January which also doubles up as a social event.

 The Garrison Artillery Volunteers has socialising and friendship at its heart. Joining is a great way to make new friends, learn technical skills and experience great events. 

How to Become a Member

To join, email us by filling in the form opposite and register your interest as either a Gunner (male) or ATS (female). The minimum age for joining is 16 years.

We will send you a list of events that are currently booked in for the year. Inform us of which event(s) you would like to attend and we will liaise for timings and details.

We have a probationary period which allows you see whether you like the group and what we do, and for us to assess you. If you decide to be a full member then at the following AGM you would be voted in as a member. From this point on you would pay membership.
