ALLAN’S MADE THE CONNECTION

07/09/17

As you know, we hold a prize draw every month, in which we pick a winner from all those who’ve activated their online account during the preceding 30 days. Your online account gives you access to our full range of information and services, and ensures you get the most from your membership.

For some of us, joining the RMA is a way to maintain links with the Corps in retirement – and someone who knows all about making lasting connections (we hope!) is Allan Vaughan. A retired Bootneck, Allan is now well established in his new civilian career as an electrician: he joined the RMA as a Full Member in May 2012.

Allan’s prize as our latest winner, provided as always by our generous oppos at the RM Shop, is the Royal Marines ‘Booty’ Bear - a top-quality plush teddy standing 9” tall, sharply turned out in MTP (mixed terrain pattern!) uniform. We emailed Allan to tell him he’d won, and were rather touched by his reply, in which he said: “Thank you very much: it is wonderful news as I purchased one many years ago at CTC whilst in training and have a picture of my very young niece with the beret on!!!”

Our prize for the September draw is one of the RM Shop’s top sellers, and with good reason. The Bullet Thermal Travel Vacuum Flask is made from stainless steel and keeps 350ml of your preferred beverage at the perfect temperature. It also looks fantastic! The Shop tells us these sell like hot cakes, and new stock has just landed, so we’re lucky to have snagged one for you.

Remember, entry into the draw is free and automatic when you activate your online account between now and 30 September 2017. Just click on this link to go to the login page; you’ll just need to provide a valid email address. We’ll draw the winner in early October. Good luck!
