DLI Capbadge


There are two types of membership available as part of the DLI Association, Full Membership or Honorary Membership, and at this time the committee have elected to keep both of them free which we can only continue to do as long as the association is being supported by as many of our Bn veterans as possible. Membership for both is only given to a single veteran or NOK (family representative) as there is no requirement at this time for all individual family members to hold a membership card.

*Membership cards will be posted out to the address provided on the application as soon as it has been processed if you are not able to attend our monthly meetings in person. The DLI Association is not responsible for lost cards due to incorrect addresses being provided. Any cards lost/stolen can be replaced at a cost of £2.50
