DISBANDMENT

It is with great regret that The HSF Association Committee has had

to announce its intention to disband the Association in its current form.

All Units (Local HSF Veterans’ Associations/Groups) will, by now, have

received a communication from Ivor Davies on behalf of the Committee.

The deadline is now passed for Phase One, which dealt with understanding

the suggestions and ideas put forward by Units. Phase Two will deal with

a Unit Vote* to decide how assets will be disposed of.

(* Only Units are members of the HSFA, Individuals cannot vote).

MORE DETAILS WILL BE POSTED IN DUE COURSE.

IF YOU SERVED IN THE HSF, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF AN HSF UNIT ASSOCIATION,

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR UNIT REPRESENTATIVE

TO DISCUSS THE ISSUE.

THIS WEBSITE WILL CONTINUE

 

HSF VETERANS WILL STILL COMMUNICATE AND

GATHER WHERE AND WHEN THEY CAN.

 

Accounts of the Reunion at The NMA on 17th May 2014

will be posted shortly.

The 2013 AGM & Reunion took place on Saturday 19th October 2013

This proved necessary due to factors beyond our control.
 and became a on-day event, as in 2012.
 
The Chairman wishes to thank all those who attended
and all those individuals and Units which gave apologies.

The Home Service Force Association was present

at The National Armed Forces Day 2013 Celebrations,

at Nottingham on Saturday 29th June 2013.

There were insufficient number of HSF Veterans available to register for marching on the day, and that registration had to be submitted 14 days before the event. The small number who managed to submit their names, dates of birth and addresses (with postcodes) [No…. I’m not kidding] were all cap-badged WFR and so marched with The WFR Assn.

There was evidence that HSF Veterans all over the country supported their own local AFD events.

The Static Stand, however was staffed by :

Mr. Richard Owen (Chairman Notts (F Coy 3WFR) HSFA)

Mr. Peter Carter Notts HSFA member, ably supported by his wife, Dorothy.

David Harris (Leics (E Coy 7 R.Anglian) HSFA) & and his mate Leonard.

Inside the Veterans’ Marquee is was possible to hear the elderly aircraft overhead, but only to guess their identity.

We were extremely busy explaining the role of the HSF and that of the HSFA

to all and sundry, and welcomed one or two local HSF Veterans, who seemed impressed.
