(the Special Containers Active Retirement Association) was set up at the end of 2005 with the principle objective of organising an annual luncheon for members.
Since its formation, annual lunches have been held in London in 2006, 2007, 2008 and
2009 with the support of A.P.Moller-Maersk.   Although the membership is primarily UK based those attending the luncheon have included people from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand. 
SCARA keeps its members informed of relevent events and other news by email, letter and via the PONLHeritage website.  
SCARA played a major part in the publication, selling and distribution of the book British Box Business: The History of OCL edited by Alan Bott,OBE.
Membership of SCARA is currently £10 and is open to all former staff of OCL, P&OCL & P&ONL and associated companies regardless of whether or not the employee is retired.  Employees of contractors used by OCL, P&OCL  & P&ONL, who themselves worked for these P&O companies, may also become members of SCARA.
