“In recognition if this splendid achievement Col (Rtd) Richard Aspray, the chairman of Frome branch RBL, presented the Platoon with a certificate at a drill parade held on the 14th December. 

“Mr Aspray explained to the Platoon how important these funds are and how they will be used to help serving and ex-service personnel and their families. He also promised to return in the spring of 2022 to give a talk about the RBL and how junior membership cost nothing to join and has many positive benefits.
