A MENU, A PHOTOGRAPH, AND BEST WISHES TO AN ABSENT
Many Years ago I was sent a copy of menu for a meal that took
place at one of the ex-officer’s reunions.
These re-unions took place every year until 1983, when it was
decided to call a halt to them. They were organised by David Trewby
(HQ Troop) and held at the Hurligham Club of which he was secretary.
Sadly on this last ever re-union one of its most popular ex officers
was absent due to sickness, Major John Meredith.
( C Troop Commander) had hurt his back, and so each of the officers
present signed the back of the menu and sent it John as a keepsake.
Only now by a remarkable chance have I come across a photograph
of those present on that very night.
This a good illustration how my web site is being kept alive by
feedback from old soldiers and their families.
