The 42nd Entry Telegs Association was formed in 1995 by Tony Williams and Roger Hubbard who worked to contact membes of the 42nd Entry so that a reunion could be organised. The first reunion was in the George Hotel Stoke and was a great success and it was agreed that future reunions would be held and the work of contacting 'lost' boys would continue.

20 years later the Association is still meeting each year with average attendances of around 35-40 (ex boys plus wives and partners). In 2015 the Reunion was held in York and planning for the 2016 Reunion is well advanced for a location near London. (see Tab Reunion 2016)
The Format of the reunion covers three days and is as follows:
Thursday evening : arrive at the Hotel, informal evening meal and visit to the bar. Arriving on the Thursday evening is optional.
Friday: for those who arrived on the previous evening the time is your own before the formal dinner in the evening. Many groups are formed for a bit of local sightseeing. It has been a tradition that some members go to the local golf club. Its not known if any golf is played! The formal dinner in the evening is held in a private dining room, dress code is suits.
Saturday: The association holds its Annual General Meeting lasting for about one hour before coffee and departure.
