The aim of this Web site is to bring together all old comrades of all arms who

served together in 36 Regiment Royal Artillery.


The Regiment was put into Suspended Animation in 1977, and we feel that it

is very important for old comrades to be able to attend Annual Reunions and

 make contact with their old comrades.


36 Regiment was a real family Regiment, the Regiment may no longer

be with us, but the family remain.


We are intent on keeping the spirit of the Regiment alive.



Get on - Parade!

Welcome to our Web site. You have found the site that is dedicated to all who

served in, or were associated with the Biggest and we think the Best Regiment

that was in service in the Royal Regiment of Artillery.


36 Heavy Air Defence Regiment was put into Suspended Animation on

the 31st December 1977, and since then, the spirit of the Regiment has

been carried on by Annual Reunions.


These Reunions had been held at the University of East Anglia in Norwich,

and were organised by Brian and Jan Greenland, and after the sad passing

of Brian, by Jan herself. Since 2002 the Reunions have been organised

by Reunion Secretary Paul Barber with help from Keith (Monty) Houldey

and in the early days by myself.


 We look forward to receiving your photos and stories. Please navigate

around the site and find out about future Reunion's, the History of the

Regiment and its Batteries, the Thunderbird Missile System, and lots more.


Please sign our Guestbook we are interested to hear what you think.

We hope you find our Web site interesting and informative.
