New feature: Personal Accounts

We are pleased to release a new feature onto the website: Personal Accounts.  We are keen to encourage members who have served in units of the Suffolk and Norfolk Yeomanry, or relatives of those who served in years gone by to share photos and stories of life in the Yeomanry at any period.  If you have stories to share please get in touch via the “submit feedback” link.

Look out for the first personal accounts being published very soon!

Hopefully see plenty of you there.

Now with added Facebook

Great news folks.  For all of you who are addicted to “The Social Network”, the Suffolk and Norfolk Yeomanry Association now has a Facebook page as well!  https://www.facebook.com/SuffolkAndNorfolkYeomanryAssociation Don’t forget to “Like” us!

We’ve joined up posts to the website with that page (don’t ask me how – dark arts!) so you can now get news about us on the website, by email by subscribing at the website, or on Facebook.

Updated history page and new photo page

Hi folks,

We’ve updated the history page with a brief history of the Suffolk and Norfolk Yeomanry from their formations to the present day. Our intention will be to provide a more detailed history section in due course.

We’ve also set up a Flickr account and linked that in a photo page on the website. We’ll be uploading photos to the site but are very happy to receive more. Please get in touch using the Feedback page if you have photos you would like to contribute.

We’ve also added “share it” buttons on each page so you can spread the word via Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.
