Shropshire Branch once again held its annual Christmas function at the Corbet Arms with some 37 members in attendance. This increase in its annual attendance reflects the growth of the Branch in that it now has some 70+ members including serving Officers and soldiers. 2023 also represented the Branch’s 30th Anniversary and thus with growth and fervent participation, the year couldn’t have ended on a better note.
