Annual Banquet of The Scientific Instrument Makers

Thursday 20th June 2013

A magnificent evening in the magnificent setting of Skinners Hall. Like us, the Company is a modern one, being two below us in the order of precedence. Opposite the Mistress and I at the dinner were the Company's Honorary Solicitor and his wife, an unusual post that I had not come across before. They were good company and were most interesting on the development of the Company. The principal guest was Lord Oxburgh who was able to sober us all up with a fascinating speech on how we are all going to run out of power by 2016!
