    THE 2017 ANNUAL REUNION FOR OFFICERS AND THEIR FAMILIES

    Following this year’s very successful lunch at Wellington College, the 2017 annual gathering for officers, their wives and wider family, will again be held at Wellington on Saturday 29th April 2017.

    The College, having made our Association a member of the Wellington College Community, gave us a very warm welcome, led by the Headmaster and the Duke of Wellington. Those who attended enjoyed the ambience of the College, which has so much in common with our own heritage, not least seeing a welcoming display by the Corps of Drums.

    Details of this event will be published in January, but it is suggested that officers put it in their diaries, NOW.

     

    Brigadier Andrew Meek
