Treats on the Thames

An excellent turnout was to be found at the first informal London drinks event on 1st May.

Held onboard the Tattershall Castle, a floating pub on the Thames, a range of OB age groups were in attendance with leavers from the 1960’s up to a 2011 leaver and all other decades represented in between.

OBs came from far and wide, and it was wonderful to see Alastair Carruthers and his wife Jean, whose travels from  Vancouver coincided with the day.

It was also remarkable  to hear how Michael Ison and Stuart Aspden met up for the first time in 40 years thanks to the event.

The next London date will continue a nautical theme with the annual dinner on HMS Belfast on Friday 8th November, with another informal drinks session on 5th December.
