1LI Events & Gatherings

If you have an event taking place of any kind whether it be a one off or an annual one and wish to bring it to the attention of the 1LI Association, then please let us know by sending an e-mail using the link at the bottom of this page with the name, date of the event, location, brief description, a contact e-mail address and we will advertise it here for you.


We are also trying to promote smaller gatherings of Light Infantrymen due to the widespread locations of where we all live and also because of the success of one such monthly gathering organised by a few "young" Light Infantrymen at The Surtees Arms, Ferryhill, Durham.

LI Gatherings are an informal affair unless otherwise stated and are held on a more regular basis than one off events, just make sure you bring a wallet and that it is your own!!!!


* Please note that unless otherwise stated the 1LI Association is not responsible for the organisation of advertised events & gatherings and all requests for information on specific events should be directed to the individual event organiser.

SCLI & LI & Rifles Reunion - Taunton

Saturday 21st April 2018 - 1900hrs to 2359hrs
Venue: The Lawns Social Club, Mary Street, Taunton, TA1 3PE

"I have again booked this venue for the 2018 reunion, so the date for your diary is
the 21st April. I feel I need to advise you all, that the cost of entry will have to rise
next year to £10. This will be as a result of an increase in teh cost of the buffet.
Liz who is the caterer at the club has informed me that this is due to the increase she
has had imposed on her by the suppliers.
If anyone wishes to contact me so that their details can be added to our database for
future invitations, my point of contact is through the webmaster of this website.
May I again thank all of you who attended in 2017 and I look forward to
seeing you again next year. Perhaps again with increased numbers."
