   Branch visit to Bruges 22 to 26th September 2014
  Monday 22nd  was taken up in travel  14 members and  their ladies being picked up from Heywood, Rochdale, Swinton Manchester and Stockport.
 Fortunately  we had a good crossing and made good time.
 Tuesday 23rd  we visited Tyne Cot Cemetery a very moving and emotional  experience, we then proceeded  into Ypres its self. 
In the evening we attended the Menin Gate Ceremony laying on a Standard party consisting of  5 members of the Branch.
 A wreath was laid on behalf of the Manchester Association.  Returning to the hotel about 22.00 hrs. were we proceeded to drink the brewery dry.

Wednesday 24th  we visited Waterloo its self having a tour of the Wellington museum,  then on to the farmhouse which is under reconstruction ready for the 200
anniversary of Waterloo next year, again a very moving experience.
 We then returned to Bruges to visit the Guild which Andy Green had managed to arrange for us at short notice, with Patrick the King of the Guild.  We received a very  warm welcome from Patrick and  Sebastian and the house keeper it was a great privilege  to actually visit where the Regiment was formed.
Thursday 25th  It was decided that the visit to Mons that had been planned would have to wait till are next visit,
because most people wanted the opportunity  to look round Bruges its self.
In the Evening we all went for a meal together where the Regiment was toasted and a very good evening was had by all. 
Saturday 26th  Unfortunately we had just missed the 11.30 ferry then had to wait until 14.30  for the next.  This making it a very late finish for the trip.
   12th December 2014   Christmas Dinner  Dance
   What a good night with 96 members and quests sat down to dinner,
   Our new President Rick Kitchen and his good lady Linda joined us for the first time.
  The chuckle brothers Jim Parry and Jeff Johnson did the raffle for the first time.  
  All in all a successful evening.  Thank you all for your continuing support.
  We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you all.
