meeting at Charles Bar at 2015hrs , at 2025hrs every one was asked to take there seats for dinner. when

every one had found there seats Harry Ward then asked all to stand for the Regimental march and the

marching in of the Gibraltar branch standard carried by Pete Link, once the regimental march was over a one

minutes silence was held, and the standard was lowered, after this every one took there seats to hear a

speech given by Bob Link were he thanked his brother Peter and Harry Ward for all there hard work in

arranging the dinner night and the reunion, he then went on to tell a few stores and take the mickey out of

his brother, all in good fun.
