Minden Day Reunion 2017

KOYLI Cap Badge

The function was an outstanding success and many thanks to everyone for turning up to support the event, it was great to see old friends and make new ones. Thank you also for the messages of thanks I have received.

I would like to say a massive thank you to: Charlie Robinson South Kirby and Moorthorpe Council for allowing us the use of The Grove free of charge and for his assistance; Hemsworth Council for donating the stage; Craig Gallimore and all his staff at The Grove for accommodating all our requests and the spectacular buffet; The Buglers of the Buglers Association, their immaculate turnout and presentation that was a reminder our regimental pride and tradition; Jane and Patrick from the 51st of Foot for their attendance and reminder of our roots; the Standard Bearers from each of our branches, it is quite a while since we have had the Standards from each of our branches on parade at Minden Day; Stephen and his family from Yorkshire Fine Arts for displaying the amazing looking bronzed maquette and for donating the first silver miniature of the statue for the evenings auction; Eddie Robinson, Tim Humphreys and Paul Scofield for their invaluable assistance throughout the evening; Lee Ward our photographer and ZTV our entertainers for the evening.

The photographs from the evening will be uploaded on my return from leave.
