The Royal Arsenal Association web site can now be accessed using the new web address www.royalarsenalassociation.co.uk
This new web address comes up on the search engine much more
readily, and therefor more people are able to find it.
As this website is new to the Association this news briefing
will not necessarily contain hot news, but merely comment
on some of the matters that have come to our notice over
the past year, and which may be of interest to our readers and visitors.
A more detailed history of the Woolwich Historical Society has been added to the RAWHS page
Royal Arsenal Woolwich Historical Society
David Brighton made a plea for help on behalf of the Royal Arsenal Woolwich Historical Society.
A book is being prepared by Brigadier Ken Timbers and material is urgently required.
Anyone who is able to help by supplying any material at all should,
in the first instance, contact Ian Van Ryssen.
