The association was formed in 1986, primarily for those retiring from the Royal Observer Corps who wished to continue the comradeship and esprit de Corps they had enjoyed whilst serving, and allowing serving and retired members with common interests to meet together socially.
In 1991 ten thousand R.O.C. members were stood down and 1995 saw the stand down of the remaining small nucleus of members and ultimately the closure of Headquarters Royal Observer Corps, thus closing the door on a proud and notable history of 70 years voluntary service to their Air Commodore in Chief, Her Majesty the Queen and their country.
The association is represented at many National events, particularly those associated with the Royal Air Force, under whose command the Corps served, and is proud to take part in the Annual muster, parade and service at the RAF & Allied Air Forces Monument and to support the work of the Monument Committee.
