The Scottish Branch Reunion Dinner was held on Saturday 31st October at the Royal Scots Club Edinburgh.
Those present were: David Parker, Dacre Watson, David Lord, Anthony & Joanna Wills, David Elston, Chris Atkinson, Rae Montgomery, Michael Stewart, Mike & Gill Craig, Harry & Kay Murray, Don & Linda Williams, Warwick Beresford-Jones plus guests, Douglas Wares & Tony Graham. Apologies were received from Nick & Bette Hunter, Charlie Crummey, Gordon Mathison, Tim MacKay & Peter Clegg.
A three course dinner was served in the Douglas Room along with Brise de France, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. After dinner David Parker gave a slide show of St Bees School punctuated with his descriptive personal memories. Dacre Watson told the attendees of the sadness of the closure but assured them of the good going on in finding a new educational use for the charitable assets. The work of the St Beghian Society continues but will only do so with the support of OSBs to regional events like this reunion dinner and it is hoped attendees will find an OSB to bring along next year. Douglas Wares gave a memorable talk on the double VC awarded to a very good Doctor in World War One.
