Branch Information As mentioned on the “About Us” page, the Wisbech Branch was the 199th branch, formed worldwide in October 1945, when the patron of the organisation at that time was H.M King George VI. October ‘2020’ means we as a branch will be celebrating our 75th anniversary in existence and to date are still a valued Royal Airforce Association Branch. This anniversary also falls in the same year as both the ‘VE Day’ & ‘VJ Day’ Anniversary’s Out of all the branches worldwide, here in the UK we are one of a few privileged to still have our own actual club, which has been maintained and just re-decorated downstairs prior to re-opening, following the Covid-19 Lockdown, (At no cost to the RAFA). Many others are not so fortunate and have to rely on room hire elsewhere. Ultimately we are all here to achieve the same purpose, providing friendship and welfare support for serving and ex-serving RAF personnel and their dependents. Actual celbrations to commemorate this anniversary are at the moment on hold subject to government advice due to the Covid-19 pandemic
Branch Meetings Third Thursday of each month starting at 8:00pm All members are welcome to attend.
In   honour   of   all   those   of   the   ANZAC   forces   who   lost   their   lives   in      WW1   and also   to   remember   our   late   President   Daryle   Bullingham,   the   Branch   held   a small   ANZAC   service   on   the   25th   April   at   the   graveside   of   Samuel   Jude,   a native   of   Wisbech      who   died   in   the   service   of   the   Australian   Imperial   Forces. We   were   ably   supported   by   members   of   the   Royal   British   Legion      Wisbech Branch.
