Yesterday evening a group of Queensmen met at the Crowborough Social Club, at the invitation of Maj.(Retd) Will Harper to celebrate the battle of Alburera (without the"H") where Maj. Harper narrated the epic tale of the battle during the Peninsular War.
we then drank the Silent Toast, which I have taken part in several times with the ACF, but I still find it very emotional.
The members present that are known to the branches were; Blue Cooper, Lenny Coombs, Barry Lane and me.
Roll on 16th May 2018. and hope to see more support (but not too much, as there may not be enough prosecco for me.
Take care everyone, stay sober (ish) and upright (ish) and keep your powder dry.
