Welcome to Swanage Army Link.

The Swanage Army Link is a dynamic association that has evolved over nearly 30 years between the Swanage Railway, the British Army, the People of Swanage and the Royal British Legion.

Regular ongoing visits by the Royal Corps of Signals soldiers are core to this Link, as is Team Herston, formed in 2007, bringing together local residents and ex soldiers who work regularly on our core project – the upkeep of Herston Halt.

More recently we have been proud to welcome Heroes Haven into the fold.

Other information

Hello, I'm the geek responsible for putting most of this site together although almost all of the content has come from other people - I just put it in the correct place (hopefully!)


Originally from London but now living in the Isle of Man having managed to escape the grip of British Telecom in 2007. Being semi-retired means I have the time to spend playing with sites such as this or travelling around the counrty on my bike visiting - or pestering - friends and family.

As I live so far away and it is impractical to attend either Exercise Topham Hatt or Team Herston events, my contribution is via the web, running this site.
