Application forms- DATE EXTENDED UNTIL TUESDAY 31st JULY 2018


As you may or may not be aware the application process, in which SAMA 82 applies for your Parade tickets from the RBL changed in recent years.  This is to reflect the current heightened security requirements and in order to maintain the continued protection afforded to those attending the Remembrance Sunday Parade in London. The security applies to Veterans and Next of Kin of those killed in the conflict taking part in the Parade and also the general public along the Parade route and the Cenotaph.


The new General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect on the 25th May 2018 which means that you will have to give written permission for SAMA82 to hold and share your personal details with the RBL. In order to do this each individual application form will now need to be completed and hand signed by the member wishing to attend the Cenotaph. Your details must match exactly the details on your ID


As part of this application process we have to provide the organisers of the event and the Metropolitan Police a detailed record of the SAMA 82 veterans and Special members who will be taking part in the Parade this year.


The form in which you need to complete can be found below and must be returned to the office, either by email to or by post to SAMA82, Unit 25, Torfaen Business Centre, Panteg Way, New Inn, Pontypool, Gwent NP4 0LS.  We kindly ask that you also send a stamped self-addressed envelope to the office if you have not already done so. Your ticket and information sheets can then be forwarded to you.



Due to security implications we will no longer be able to pass your ticket onto anyone/anywhere else other than in special circumstances.  Each individual ticket will normally be sent direct to the applying members’ home address.


We have streamlined the system this year and if you wish to attend the after parade lunch you will need to apply and make payment for this on the same application form.


Please note the deadline for forms to be return is extended until Tuesday 31st July 2018.

If any forms are returned to us after this date your original request for a Parade ticket will be declined.



Security arrangements

The form is self-explanatory; however please note the following brief we have received from the Metropolitan Police.



  • The security requirement has been imposed by Metropolitan Police and on the day Police Officers will be conducting individual security checks on all participants.


  • Ticket holders will need to bring photographic ID,

    i.e.:- passport or driving licence. If participants fail to provide Officers with this evidence, they will be refused entry on the spot into Horse Guards Parade. 


    N.B:- When completing the attached form, please make sure that the name on the form is exactly how it appears on your form of ID.  Otherwise you could be refused entry for this reason also.


  • Ticket holders will need to provide a document showing proof of address.

    i.e.:- Utility Bill. If participants fail to provide Officers with this evidence, they will be refused entry on the spot into Horse Guards Parade. 


    N.B:- When completing the attached form, please make sure that the address on the form is the same as the evidence you will provide.  Otherwise you could be refused entry.


After parade lunch


As usual SAMA 82 shall be holding an After Parade lunch at the Union Jack Club, Waterloo, which is open to all members and their families. The number of tickets available is limited to 120 so these will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

Ticket allocation


Your Parade tickets will be sent to you pre-printed, so you will be unable to pass onto your ticket to other Veteran, if you are unable to attend nearer the time.  If this is the case, please can you contact the office to inform us, so we can then in turn, inform the organisers of your absence, again for security reasons.


Also if you could provide us, with your email address, if you have one please, we would appreciate it.

We thank you for your assistance and co-operation in this matter.  Should you have any queries regarding the contents of this email or the attached application form, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Welcome to SAMA (82)


The NEW SAMA Community Area

The Old Discussion Board which only contained Forums is no more.

It has been replaced with a brand New SAMA Community Area which has:- Forums to keep up with all the latest news for members eyes only, which will include offers of free tickets/invitations for events offered to members (such as Invitations from the Not Forgotten Society, events, Buckingham Palace Garden Parties etc.). This is where member sensitive News and Announcements will be posted by the SAMA Office and Trustees.  There is also a Gallery for all your photographs - a Chat room to chat with other members who may be on line - a Blog facility for members to post their Blogs on - a Members list where you can check out who is registered in the Community as a Member and send them personal messages.  There is a Calendar Facility where events of interest to the Members can be posted by any member. 
ALL these areas are only able to be viewed by those members registered in the Community. 
So that makes all areas (including your photographs) as secure as possible to the members and away from prying eyes.

To register in the Community as a SAMA Member you must provide your SAMA Membership Details including your full three part SAMA Membership Number on the Form when registering, if you seem genuine but are not on the SAMA Membership List, then you will be registered on the Forums only as a Guest and be restricted to viewing the 6 Forums on the Public Category of the Forums ONLY, no other facilities will be available to you.  If you subsequently join SAMA (82) then when you inform the Admins they will change your registration to SAMA Member giving you access to all the facilities and the dozens of other Forums on the Members Only Forums part of the Community.

To go to the New Community, click on the Forums and Members Area link under the Picture above.
