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.

PBC – PLYMOUTH BREAKFAST CLUB

Location
Lord Louis,
Glen Road,
Plymouth,
PL7 3DE,
United Kingdom.

Club Email Address will be listed shortly

Meeting Time : 1st Saturday and 3rd Sunday at 1000hrs-1200hrs

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.
