Reading ex Ghurkas presented our Branch with a cheque for £1001

The Gurkhas spokesman mentioned that their Association was 485 members strong and that there were 3,000 to 4,000 Ghurkhas and their families now in Reading and were so impressed by the warmth they have received by the townsfolk.
During the hospitality that we were pleased to give the Ghurkhas; there was the usual immediate feeling of comradeship felt by ex servicemen. They were so impressed by the benefits of membership that they all took away application forms to join the RB Legion and our Club.
We welcome New Members of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
