The Regimental Association of the Devonshire and Dorset Regiment

Our Local Organisation

Our Local Organisation

The Regimental Association Local OrganisationThroughout Devon and Dorset and beyond, individuals commit their time and energy to create and maintain local organisations and gatherings of association members. These comprise traditional Association Branches, normally structured with a committee, and less formal Focal Points, which normally have one organiser, and are less-formal social hubs.  Both Branches and Focal Points conduct activities and social events throughout the year. They are always delighted to see new members who have served in our regiments, The Rifles or any of its antecedent regiments.
