Welcome to the Lincoln & North Lincolnshire branch of The Western Front Association.

The Lincoln & North Lincolnshire Branch was formed by Mick McDonald in 2009 and usually attracts more than 50 members and other attendees to each meeting. We meet at Sobraon Barracks in Lincoln every six weeks. 

Western Front Association Members and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £4 donation on the door. Any new visitors will be assured of an welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
