Annual OHiL Autumn Reunion Luncheon
Former Language Master Alan Moorse BA., (Cantab) attends second OHiL function. Having journeyed up from their home in Wiltshire earlier in the day, Alan and his wife Anne returned to Doggett's to join us at our annual autumn buffet luncheon beside the Thames on Thursday 16th October 2014.



As well as AJM (affectionately nicknamed Dotty when a Captain in the CCF Signals Division!) in attendance again, we were also joined by five gentlemen from the 1970's HCS era, three of whom had not been to these casual gatherings before. They each said that they intend to spread the word to as many of their contemporaries as possible in the hope that other OHs working in or near The Capital will wish to join in next time a Midday event is staged at this riverside pub.

Before all guests began queuing up for the generous buffet laid out, it was considered appropriate that we should observe a minutes silence in memory of all those who lost their lives during World War One which began exactly 100 years ago. Thus Major Martin Everett TD., MBE (OH 1956 – 1959) invited the assembled guests to stand still before he said Grace. Martin then took the opportunity to mention a few facts regarding serving OH personnel about whom he had been researching. It is already well documented that, of the hundreds from Herefordshire who went to serve King & Country, 70 never returned. A Plaque commemorating them is to be unveiled at St. George's Church in Ypres, Belgium.

The mild autumn weather played its part this year because guests were able to wander out onto the sunny open-air balcony from which to take in panoramic views across the Thames as they ate their meal and sipped a glass of wine.
