The London Regiment Association Carol Service - Guards Chapel14th December 2021
My final event of 2021 was the London Regiment Association's annual carol service in the Guards Chapel, Wellington Barracks. The guests, which included the Master Merchant Taylor and the Master Ironmaker, were hosted for a drink beforehand by Major Robbie Wilmont, and we were greeted at the door of the Chapel by Seamus, the Irish Guards mascot (who I had met at the recent Irish Guards Association dinner). The interior of the Chapel is simply stunning, and the service was a fitting end to the year. As I walked towards St James’s Park tube, I was humming Ding Dong! Merrily on High, and beginning to feel distinctly Christmas-y.
I hope you all have a happy, and safe, Christmas, and that 2022 turns out better than 2021 (and 2020!)
