Due to the increase COVID-19 cases in the West Lothian and surrounding areas. The branch committee have made the decision to cancel all West Lothian Branch RAA meetings until further notice. When we think of the average age of our branch members it makes sense to do this. If anyone needs anything help, or assistance please don’t hesitate to contact me or the committee. UBIQUE
Welcome to the website of the West Lothian branch of the Royal Artillery Association. We are a new branch which was established officially on the 9th July 2015.
We are actively recruiting new members to make the Branch somewhere for comrades young and not so young, to get together and share a few sandbags and hopefully keep the Gunner family strong in our area.
We meet every month at the Military Museum Scotland which is located at the Legion Hall, Louis Braille Avenue, Wilkieston, West Lothian, EH27 8EJ
