From the Highlands to the Capital

London Scottish and more
This week the Mistress and I joined the Clerk and the Clerk's Assistant at a magical meeting of the Highlands and London. Courtesy of Brigadier Alistair Bruce of Crionaich, the summer Party of the London Regiment was a well attended, ear-drum testing event!
It's also been a week for finalising the details for the 400th next week - we very much look forward to seeing many of you at Temple Church next Thursday! Company bow ties are most welcome - if you are lucky enough to have one!
Yesterday, I also had the pleasure of a very fine luncheon at Drapers' Hall. For me, it is a memorable place for two main reasons: the Hall is one of the finest in the City, and, secondly, it is also the location of our annual trouncing in the Inter-Livery Bridge Competition! Hosted by Master Draper Philip Ogden it was another fine and fun occasion. At its conclusion we ventured into the garden and I was able to enjoy the company of Father Andrew Moughtin-Mumby and Assistant Tom Harris, both of whom were keen to test the Company's snuff!
