Annual Dinner Dance


The support we received was fantastic, with 117 sitting down to dinner.
 Jack Dummer really did the business with 40 of his Golf club friends attending.
Birt Feltham and his family made up a party of 15.
Major Grant Baker the Regimental Adjutant, drove up from London and really 
entered into the spirit of the event. Major Baker gave us an informative update of the
 Battalions operations, spending a lot of time visiting members and there guests
at the tables. Assisting with the raffle tickets, take a credit Sir.
The food and service was excellent, in fact a good night was had by all.
Since changing venue to the The Country House Hotel we have appeared to 
have gone from strength to strength.  Many made a week end of it with 26 rooms booked,
long may it continue.  Aidy Bibby from True North, who provided the Lap Top Prize for 
the Colonel's Fund, which raised 500.00, have asked if we will keep him informed
of our activities as they would like to join us again.
Thank you for all your support.


Regimental Remembrance Day

Regimental Remembrance Day May 20th 2012.


We started off with 32 names but finished up with only 16 on a 45 seater coach.

 However those that did attend had a good week-end.

 Saturday evening we visited the Grenadier Club at Windsor,

 along with the Wigan and St Helen's branch.

 The Chapel was packed as always and the Parade probably the best we have had in years.

One young Grenadier who has just joined Nijamagen Company said to myself

 " If  I am as good as that  I will be happy ".  Not bad for old Fogies.
