Membership of the AOBA


aoba needs you


The AOBA urgently needs new members.

In order for us to continue as successfully as we currently are, your help is needed to recruit more Arborfield veterans to our Association.

So if any of you know of a likely candidate, who is not a member, use all your persuasive powers to get them to join.

Your reward will be a year's free membership - well worth it!


Membership of the Arborfield Old Boys Association is open to anyone who entered through those hallowed gates at Arborfield as an apprentice. Completion of the apprenticeship is not a prerequisite - so if you moved on to other things before your Passing Out Parade, you can be sure of a very warm welcome.

Applications for Membership from those who may have been military or civilian members of the permanent staff of the Apprentice School or Colleges are also most welcome.

Membership and Fees

A membership fee of £15 is payable per annum. You will also receive a copy of our OBAN magazine and access to members only parts of the website including a pdf copy of OBAN.

Overseas Members can now pay their subs  via PAYPAL.

Membership Data Base

Unfortunately, given the increasing levels of Internet abuse, adding the database to our website - or allowing unauthorised access to it - is considered by the AOBA as far too dangerous.

So, should you wish to find out if any of your mates are members of the AOBA the only officially authorised listing is securely held within the records held by our Membership Registrar.

Should you have any enquires regarding the membership lists, only the Registrar is authorised to disclose this information. Should anyone else approach you saying they can provide this information you are advised to treat this with a high degree of concern and we would urge you to report it to the AOBA.
