Blockheads Tent (Edinburgh)
The Blockheads moved into our new base on 15th January, the Scots Guards Association Club in Clifton Terrace (opposite Haymarket Station). Seems a very nice place, with lots of interesting pictures and photos all over the place (even in the gents' loo!) commemorating the SG. Only stipulation they make is, non-members sign the Visitors' book, and pay £1, and there's a box on the bar.
"Yes, sir, I think we're going to like it here". I think Charlie's happy with it anyway, and everyone else seems so. It's certainly central for travel (by train, 'bus, etc). What's not to like, as they say?
Eric Schultz has a few L&H DVDs. He thought that it would be a good time to get them together for a group photo.
Men o' War Tent (Colchester)
The next Men o' War Tent meeting is on 11th February and we have a terrific programme of 5 shorts - with a strong emphasis on Ollie's input as a nod to his 125th birthday this January. Full programme details are on the website. (Well, not quite 'full programme details' as we are hoping to include one special Ollie-related extra as a surprise on the night).
We've also had our Manifest bookings confirmed for the first half of the year so check out the diary dates on the website.
