Welcome to the official web site of OCAAA - The Old Caledonia Artificer Apprentices’ Association.  Within these pages you will find information relevant to our Association and also HMS Caledonia - Rosyth’s College of Knowledge on the Hill - where the majority of our members dedicated their youth to the pursuit of engineering knowledge, alongside other, more leisurely, pastimes (as some of the pages reveal).

We hope that you enjoy your OCAAA browsing experience, but should you be unable to find that which you seek, or experience technical problems with the site, please do not hesitate to drop Spyda an email.  You’ll find an email link to him at the bottom of each page.  Please note that our Members Corner is restricted to OCAAA members only - so if you want the key to that particular door you must join the association!

Following the hugely successful and enjoyable May 2014 Reunion weekend, planning for the next OCAAA Reunion is now well underway.  The die has been cast and the OCAAA Committee’s Reunion Secretary, Don Smith, has made outline arrangements for the weekend of Friday 6th - Sunday 8th May 2016.

Heeding the the views of members wishing for a north-west region event, the 2016 OCAAA Reunion will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Blackpool.  Details of cost and how to book are contained in the Spring 2015 issue of the OCAAA Newsletter.  Prices are low, so book early and look out for further details in future editions of the Newsletter!

2016 Reunion Weekend

The NEW OCAAA  lapel pin, available from Secretary Phillip Alder for the princely sum of £2:50 each, plus £1:25 p+p.  Regrettably, overseas orders will attract marginally higher postal charges.

Those of you desperate to save on the £1:25 p+p costs may instead elect to pre-order for collection at the OCAAA Reunion in Blackpool next year (May 2016).Pre-orders for collection should also be forwarded to OCAAA Secretary.
