Established in March 1948, the Boston Association maintains the link between the Honourable Artillery Company and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts (AHAC).
The Association’s primary activity is in the organisation of the Company’s official visits to Boston and assists the AHAC with their visits to London, both of which occur on a ten-year cycle. The Association also holds numerous social functions in furtherance of this purpose, often in line with national holidays in North America, such as Thanksgiving. More broadly, the Association is the link with other formations in the USA and Canada and so helps coordinate additional visits and communications between the members of the HAC and others in North America.
The AHAC’s last official visit to London occurred in 2013 when they presented the Congressional Medal of Honor Society Flag to the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey, as well as visited Armoury House. In 2014, a delegation of over 60 HAC members, including Pikemen & Musketeers and the Regimental Band and Corps of Drums, returned to Boston, led by the President and the Commanding Officer of the HAC.
