The AGM will be followed by the Autumn Lunch in the Club at 12.30 PM.  The Trustees are thrilled to announce that our Guest of Honour and after lunch speaker will be Admiral The Lord West of Spithead, GXB, DSC, PC. He had a distinguished career in the Royal Navy, culminating in being appointed First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff from 2002 to 2006. Amongst many appointments he served as Captain of HMS Ardent in the Falklands War and was the last to leave the ship when she was sunk in Falkland Sound. Since retiring from the Royal Navy, he has taken up many appointments including becoming the first Chancellor of Solent University and joining the Board of the Imperial War Museum.  He was appointed as Under Secretary of State with responsibility for Security in the administration of Gordon Brown from 2007 to 2010, and was made a life peer sitting on the Labour benches in the House of Lords.  In 2014 he presented the 15-part BBC Radio 4 series "Britain at Sea"

The Cavalry and Guards Club can accommodate 50 for lunch and tickets will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. The cost will be £50 per head which will include a pre-luncheon drink, a two-course lunch, wine and coffee. The Trustees hope that this will be strongly supported. 

Places are limited so please return the necessary form once received in the next Gallipolian.

The Cavalry & Guards Club is located on the north side of Piccadilly. The nearest underground stations are Hyde Park Corner (Piccadilly Line) or Green Park (Piccadilly / jubilee Lines).
