Launch Party of Big Curry Lunch
Thursday 7th December 2017
City of London Club
The Lord Mayor's Big Curry lunch is held at Guildhall in the spring. The organisers, supporters, representatives from ABF The Soldiers' Charity and civic representatives met at the City of London Club for the launch party. General Sir Mike Jackson gave a very good speech and reminded us that many of the veterans who returned from the Napoleonic Wars ended up on the streets of the City begging. Without the support of charities such as the ABF The Soldiers' Charity, today's troops returning from conflict zones would face the same predicament as Wellington's heroes.
