Welcome to Noah's Arc, the Club of the 14th/20th King's Hussars

The Guidon of the 14th/20th King's Hussars

Noah's ARC is the home of all those who served in The 14th/20th King's Hussars - the finest Regiment of the British Army in which anyone would ever want to serve. The Regiment was amalgamated in 1992 with the Royal Hussars (PWO) to become one of todays Royal Armoured Corps regiments, The King's Royal Hussars. But today we are proud to boast possibly the largest ex-members club of old comrades from any Regiment past or present.

Our aim is to perpetuate the memory of the 14th/20th King's Hussars and if ever you marched behind our Guidon you are most welcome to join us. If you did not, we equally welcome you in visiting us.

Noah's Arc Reunion Fanfare
Noah's Arc Reunion 2021 Cancelled

Message from our Chairman - Andy Prunty Following a conversation with the Imperial hotel today I sadly announce that reunion 2021 is again to be cancelled due to that pesky Covid..

If you have booked direct with the hotel mentioning Noah's ARC then no money will be taken. If however you have used a third party booking site then you will need to cancel via that site. On a brighter note reunion 2022 has been provisionally booked for weekend of 23rd April and you will be advised when you are able to book your rooms.

We wont have had a reunion for 2 years and the added fact that it would be our centenary we aim to make 2022 something to remember and we are reserving all 180 rooms so if you don't normally, please consider staying at the hotel so it will be ours for the weekend.

The committee is looking into some form of get together later this year assuming we can all meet up. and ideas are afoot for other meetings/trips.

I am, as you may have noticed, going to restart the popular auctions as some very nice items have been donated by various members of the ARC.

Please spread the word amongst other sites stay safe and the beer will flow soon enough ......

The Heroes of Ramnuggar

The Heroes of Ramnuggar

Friday 22nd November 2019 marks the 170th Anniversary of the Battle of Ramnuggar. On the 22nd November 1848 on the banks of the Chenab in the Punjab, HM 14th Light Dragoons fought a savage battle in order to force the Sikhs back across the river. Colonel William Havelock led his troops not only to the edge of the river but into it, where they became almost immobile and suffered heavy losses including the loss of Colonel Havelock.
Our regiment still 'celebrates' that battle today, so I ask all visitors to join us in a salute to -
"The Heroes of Ramnuggar"

The KRH Northern Reunion

Barton Grange Hotel

A reminder that this years Northern Reunion will be held on Sat 10th Nov at the Barton Grange Hotel (1900hrs), Preston, followed by a Remembrance Service on Sunday 11th at St Lawrence Church, Barton (1000hrs).
On Sunday morning the Remembrance Service will be held in the Church of St Lawrence, Barton, and we are hoping that as many Old Comrades as possible will attend to mark this 100th anniversary of the guns falling silent at the end of the Great War.
The marching party will form up in the hotel car park before marching the short distance to church. Please note that the Boars Head pub, adjacent to the church, has closed and the car park is no longer available for use. Those attending the service are asked to park in the far side of the Barton Grange car park (on the left as you enter), please do not use the car park in front of the hotel, unless you are a guest of the hotel.

At the present time there are no ashes awaiting interment to the Columbarium for this year.

I really appreciated, thanks a lot. I am very proud and very glad on wearing your famous Regimental T shirt. I am deserving your gifts with great dignity, regards and respects. Once again many thanks. It's wonderful."
