So Who Can Join?
The IVA has three types of membership:
If you are not sure which section you should join, then just send me your details using the email link on this page & we'll see. Anyway, whichever category you fit into, you are still very welcome.

In time, many member's units will have a page of their own, giving details of its history & distinctions together with details of the members who served therein. If you would like to see your unit's emblem displayed herein, just join up & tell me all about your old unit.
