SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER
First of all apologies for being late with the newsletter, but you know how it is this time of the year, sea
sand and at our age sleep.
Our former president, Burtie Sanders, was taken into hospital and had part of his leg amputated and I’m
sure you all join me in wishing him well and a speedy recovery.
Joe and I visited Col. Arnold as he said he has trouble with his legs and feet so we went on a Saturday
afternoon jaunt and it was a pleasure to see him and his delightful family again. We met his son-in-law for
the first time and I’m sure he couldn’t make head nor tail of what we were on about.
On 12

th
August we had a stall at the Sedlescombe Past Times, it was manned by one member and
another member’s wife, for which we thank them for giving up what was a lovely weekend, although we
only made £31.00 profit it all helps.

Oct visit to Passchendale
Advance warnings,
The December meeting will be held as an informal social evening with food laid on. Tickets priced £6.00
need to be bought in advance for the buffet so we know how many to cater for, they can be obtained from
Mike Hewton, Joe Sneyd, Pete Smith or Bob Bumstead, this is a social event so family and friends are also
welcome to attend so bring your wives and girlfriends but not together. That reminds me of a Sgt’s mess
dinner I was waiting at, the RSM proposed a toast to “our wives and sweethearts” and Sgt?????? Said
may they never meet. The RSM didn’t flinch he just held up his right hand showing five fingers, indicating
five extras.
If you have anything you wish to have added please let me know and I will do it.
That’s it for this month, but the October newsletter will be a few days late so I can report on the
Passchendale trip
Take care of yourselves and each other
