Territorial Army: 100th Anniversary

Volume 692: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

My right honourable friend the Minister of State for the Armed Forces (Adam Ingram) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I am pleased to announce that the centenary anniversary of the Territorial Army (TA) and the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association (RFCA) will be commemorated in the United Kingdom in 2008. The commemorations, which will be designated “TA100”, will commence from the anniversary on 1 April 2008. The main national level event will take place on Horse Guards Parade on Saturday 21 June 2008, and between April 2008 and Remembrance Day 2008 there will be a number of regional and local activities, with a broad emphasis on TA veterans and members of the TA currently deployed on operations. The Army will be working with the RFCAs, the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency, the National Army Museum, regimental and corps museums and service charities to plan events throughout the United Kingdom. Further details will be made available in due course.
