Autumn Court and Dinner

Monday 16th September 2013

My first Court meeting since Installation. It was held on HQS Wellington, the ‘Hall’ of the Master Mariners. Lots of topics and new entrants. After some debate the budget for the Jubilee event was agreed. The task is now to stick to it! We enjoyed an excellent dinner afterward on a balmy evening on the Quarterdeck. We finished off most of the wine from the Installation Lunch and I had the pleasure of being the first Master for seven years to be able to say after the loyal toast; “ Ladies and Gentlemen, you may smoke”! and we could without leaving our seats.
