Breakfast Clubs and what they do.
ALL ARMS, VETERANS & SERVING Welcome to the 'Breakfast Clubs'. The Breakfast Clubs are groups of Veterans and serving members of all arms of Her Majesties Armed Forces, who, in short, look out for each other. Self-reliance, wasn’t it always our way?
There are no official national rules or subscriptions; individual Breakfast Clubs make their own decisions.
We meet every weekend, Saturday or Sunday mornings, eat breakfast together, indulge in some good old military banter, some irreverent talk and some black humour. It is much like the best bits of your time when you were serving.
For many of us, this also leads us to meeting socially at other times, with wives and partners, at Regimental Dinners (with our respective associations), for nights out, barbecues, parties and family occasions etc. and we network among the variety of trades the veterans all now work in.
It really works because we all have a similar outlook on life; similar sense of humour and in many respects the social life many of the veterans of the breakfast clubs now enjoy are similar to the days when we served.
We have representatives from Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines... so if you want to come along, join in the banter, as long as you have a uniform service history, or association with such, and can cope with the sense of humour, just turn up on a Saturday or Sunday morning, at one of the breakfast clubs, and you will be made welcome.
