Memorial Plaque at National Arboretum

The IBB & IJLB Association after much hard work we were able to plant a Memorial Tree at the National Arboretum along with a dedication plaque in tribute and honour to all who served in IBB & IJLB.

Many of us made the long journey to National Arboretum for the planting and dedication and after we  were given a tour of the NA which you could not see all in a day.

The most important part was that we have a Memorial Tree that everyone can see the contribution over years that the IBB & IJLB  gave to the Armed Services.

On the right you will see Graham Fowler our retired Treasurer standing over the Memorial Tree     

IBB and IJLB Association 2018 Reunion

Friday, December 9th, 2016

The 2018 Reunion of the IBB and IJLB Association was debated at the AGM and many good points were put across however the committee are open to further inputs especially from those who could not attend to get a good overall picture as the months put forward were May, June/July or September 2018. The place of the next reunion could be Oswestry in one of those months or for example many members might feel it time to revisit the National Arboretum in Lichfield in May and have a Friday to Monday weekend if so the will look into it for getting the best hotel deals and AGM and Dinners venue. If you have ideas like this contact or on Association Forum at
Your input is very valuable and if a right choice can bring more to attend it will no doubt bring in new members
