There is also a class of Associate Member which is open to their families and friends, and to anyone who has a particular interest in Royal Air Force music or in military bands in general. Members receive the Association’s journal The Blue and the Gold, which is published twice a year, and notice of the annual reunion, which is usually held in July.
