The 3st May 2019 saw 41 Centarians and their ladies & guests dining at Southover.

  

This number, the highest at a CRA Dinner for over a decade was bouyed by the attendance of 4 serving cadets - once again a recent record.

 

News from our members and from the unit was delivered by Mick Crick including a response from Her Majesty the Queen to a message of loyal greetings sent by our President Martin Russel DL.  Martin also provided his own message to the gathering representing his thoughts on what was probably the last CRA Dinner in its current form.

 John Bowra, wearing one of his many "hats" provided an update on activity at the school and Brian Fuller ended the speeches with personal and passionate memories of CRA dinners in the past. 

Thanks to Mick Crick for his assistance with menu cards, Diana Johnson for the photographs, John Bowra for the drinks arrangements and bar and to Gill at Chequers for the catering.
