151 Regiment Officers Mess Guest Dinner
It was a traditional Officers' Mess Dinner but this one was special since it was the occasion when the Regiment and the Marketors said goodbye to the Regiment's retiring Honorary Colonel, Brigadier Richard Rook. Richard has been invaluable in helping to build the relationship between 151 Regiment and the Marketors as I emphasised when I spoke after dinner. We and the Regiment welcomed at the Dinner the Regiment's new Honorary Colonel, Major General Mark Poffley. His is a huge job, as he is in charge of the whole of the UK land army and so he has what is reputed to be the busiest job in the army.
