Happy New Year!
Best wishes to everyone for a great evening tonight in Welcoming in the New Year!
I'll be dining in the Mess with a rare and warmly welcomed appearance by Colonel Rowley Birkin, a former Regimental Commanding Officer, who left the service after our return from the Martian plains to take appointment as a barrister with the prominent firm Pratt & Sons.
An eloquent man with a brilliant vocabulary, you can always rely upon him to regale with tales of adventure and high spirited hijinx, where inevitably he freely admits.....he was very, very drunk!
