There are also Veterans' Breakfast meetings every month where vets from all services get together for a full breakfast and comradeship.

If you go on to their website and bung in your postcode it will give the nearest one to you.

Welcome to the Plymouth Breakfast Club

We are a group of veterans & serving members of Her Majesties Armed Forces, & like other Veteran’s Breakfast Clubs around the country & overseas, our ethos is mutual support; it works because we all have a similar humour & outlook, & the social life we now enjoy is like our service days.

All services veterans (If you can cope with the banter), turn up on a specify day morning & you will be made welcome

I went to one locally and it was a Royal Engineers cock waving fest!!! Great bunch of guys but they had a SNCO's table, Officers Table and Other ranks. we (3 matelots) sat on the officers table (unintentionally)and we were welcomed and it was a good laugh.

The looks we got from the other tables for sitting where we did was quite obvious but I believe we broke down the barriers they had set themselves. It was mentioned that the RAFA don't attend as they thought it was too Army.

There are however a few NAMET midnights in their group :)

Don't go every month but a couple of times a year.
