Here we go then. Up and running again

Will all of you who are attending the 2018 REunion please visit the appropriate page and book without further delay.

The site has been down for a week which has thrown us back a bit but it will very quickly catch up now that we are back on line

All bookings should be in by the end of Feb (don't foreget your menu choices) and then we can crack on with the table layouts etc.

Ginge are you bringing the horses? Are there any raffle tickets left from previous years? 

Can anyone think of anything I might have missed?

Hi Chris, will put the word out to Bernie Bolton ( NIENBURG ) Shiny

Here we are then. At last.

This is registration month folks. Please get your booking in, not forgetting your menu choices, ASAP.

Will people who have brought guests in the past and are planning on doing the same this year, particularly ones who are unlikely to follow this site, contact them and let them know either verbally or by pointing them at this site so that they can follow the instructions / directions themselves.

You might start saving up for your raffle prize while you're at it. It's been a few years since I saw a Bar B Q set.

BOB can you contact the bloke who was talking about combining reunions because there is no reason that I can think of why they shouldn't come to Southport this year.

Full details are on REUNION 2018 on this site but please get in touch if it's too vague and/or you don't understand what's on there.

 (second attempt) The proposed dates for the Black Horse Trail 2018 are as follows, depart UK 16 September, return 21 September. This, of course, will be the last BHT. We will follow the 1918 trail of 7 Field Company where it took part in three of the five Spring Offensives and the location the Company were on the 11th of the 11th 1918. It is proposed to travel to and from Lille with Euro Star and hire a minibus to travel around the sites. The main areas we will cover will be south of the Somme, the river Lys near Estaires and Foret de Nieppe, and on the river Aisne between Soissons and Pontavert at the end of the Chemin des Dames. If you interested in coming along please email: [email protected]

7 Field Company 1917

(second attempt) I have uploaded two videos to youtube covering 7 Field Company's 1917 trails. I have to make it in two parts. Part one, January to 14 June and Part two 15 June to 31 December. I tried to publish this in December to mark the centenary 1917-2017 but I got a bit behind. Hope you find it interesting.

Things are coming together very nicely and over the next couple of weeks I'll be sending Bob a list of the people who have paid along with a seating plan based on last years.

Wait until it's published and if you want to be moved contact me direct

[email protected]

and I'll sort it out and resend to Bob.

We have decided that this years entertainment will be based on the ukelele because of our proximity to it's spiritual home.

I've written to George Formby with a view to him making a guest appearance but, at the time of writing, I've had no reply. Probably didn't offer him enough.

For those of you who are reluctant to part with your money, please bear in mind the crack. Priceless

Have just spoken th Jimmy, Sam he wishes me to pass on his condolences toyou and Bian's family. He's at home and says he's doing well, but having to get about with a walking fram at the moment. His bike is bent and will be taking it in for repair. His speach today was the best that I've heard him, very seldom was he searching for words, which is a great achievement. He sends his best wishes to you all for The New Year.
