BWDC Membership Application

Membership applications are done on-line.

Please read the notes below.

When your application is approved by the committee (which meets in January and July each year) the membership secretary will ask you to pay your life subscription to the treasurer – when he receives your subscription you will be sent your BWDC Tie, and you will be entitled to attend Dinners as a member, and to bring a guest.  

You can either fill in the form below (if it shows with your browser security settings!) or

The British Wireless Dinner Club was founded in 1922 partly for social reasons and partly to maintain a list of members skilled in wireless practice who might be useful to the nation in a future war. These days the Club continues its social role by means of the Annual Dinner but it also has the more serious purpose of bringing together members of the Armed Forces and representatives of the Electronics Industry. Some of its history is at, where details of the Annual General Meeting/Dinner are also published


1. Membership of the Club is restricted to serving and retired officers of the Regular, Auxiliary or Reserve Forces who are competent in the techniques of wireless and their extension into signals intelligence, electronic warfare or information technology, and to civilians of equivalent officer status and qualifications serving in, or who have served in, Government Establishments.

2. In addition, from time to time the Committee may invite as members people who in the opinion of the Committee would by their membership further the interests of the Club.

3. All applicants for membership must be proposed and seconded by existing club members. If possible applications should reach the Secretary no later than the months of May or November as the Committee undertakes its review at 6 monthly intervals.

4. The Life Membership fee shall be £20, which includes the cost of the Club Tie or Club Brooch, and is payable after election has been confirmed by the Committee.

5. It is the responsibility of each Member to ensure that the Secretary is informed in writing or by email of all subsequent changes to the permanent address supplied on their application form. A personal (rather than business) email address will help us keep in touch

Please Note: It will be assumed that the address held is no longer correct if no reconfirmation of address is received from you in response to two successive calling notices for an Annual General meeting. Thereafter mailings to you will cease and only recommence on receipt in writing or by email of an updated permanent address.
