What we do:
The Association organises 2 reunions in London each year for members and their guests. There is usually an Annual Dinner in late November, and a less formal Party in June. The Association also supports and may make a financial contribution to more local events and/or cap-badge events held away from London. For further details see Events.
The Association produces a Journal each year, to keep abreast of affairs in Oman and SAF in particular, which is sent to all members and to selected bodies in both UK and Oman. See 'The Journal' page in 'Events and News'
