Dear ex Junior Soldier from JIB,
The Junior Infantry Battalion (JIB), Sir John Moore Barracks, Shorncliffe, Kent opened in September 1967. We have been asked to see if there is an appetite for a reunion in September 2017. 50 years ago the camp opened its gates to 1000, 15 year olds. The gathering would be for anyone that started out in JIB.
Permission has been granted to host some kind of reunion from the Commanding officer 2RGR who are in the camp and presently in Afghanistan. No work has taken place for this event as it would only go ahead if there was sufficient interest.
Anyone interested in attending such an event should get in touch with Major (Retd) Pat Ralph on:
