34 members and friends attended our lunchtime Armed Forces Day gathering at the Millstone on 2 July and it proved a very sociable event, with the finger buffet enthusiastically consumed, stories told and reminiscences exchanged.

The Somme ceremony at 2000hrs. on 1 July at the War Memorial was equally successful and included the blowing of a trench whistle, an excellent presentation from Brian Palmer about the four local men who fell in action during the battle and a two minutes silence. Branch Standard Bearer Paul Dawson paraded our Standard and Branch Trumpeter Lawrence Hayes played Last Post and Reveille. We recently sent donations to the RBL County Welfare Fund, Selly Oak Clinical Unit and the RAF Wittering Families Fund. The Branch remains in a healthy financial position and is well-placed to fund future commitments.

Many thanks to all who made the above possible. Our next event is the AGM at White Hart, 1230hrs. on Wed 27 July. All members are, of course, very welcome, as are suggestions or comments about the Branch and its activities.
