On Dec 8th, Millbank held it's annual Christmas Lunch in the Ruben's Suite at Guy's Hospital.
There was a very good turn out - our largest lunch ever. Members enjoyed the spectacular views over London from the 29th floor despite the weather being a bit grey whilst enjoying a complimentary glass of cheer.  As always, we had a raffle, tombola & a stall with goodies which raised a significant sum of money for the branch.
Our members certainly dig deep into their pockets for which we are very grateful.  Kim Bourne from the Museum of Military Medicine was also there with some small items for sale- she was kept busy so hopefully made some pennies for the museum. Also, we were delighted that Col Alison McCourt & Col John Quinn & his wife were able to join us.  After a traditional Christmas lunch which was very tasty & the loyal toast Col Alison spoke to us all about the Corps & the future as well as the importance of the Association. Friendship was much in evidence that day.  Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the day which is wonderful which was enhanced by all the staff looking after us all so well.

Thursday Dec 8th - Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey
 
10 members attended The Field of Remembrance which was an honour.  His Royal Highness, Prince Harry of Wales was in attendance and as always charmed all those present, especially some cadets from Barbados who were at the next plot to the QAs. They were very excited. After the act of remembrance we headed off to The Red Lion on Whitehall for lunch. We were delighted to have 3 members from the Newcastle Branch join us also we were pleased to welcome Lesley Steer who has now transferred to the Millbank Branch. On our way we stopped in Trafalgar Square to pay our respects to suffragette Millicent Garrett Fawcett 
A grand time was had by all.
Sunday Dec 11th - St. Paul's Cathedral
The three branch members who paraded the standard at The Lord Mayor's Show paraded the standard again at St. Paul's Cathedral. Also in attendance was Maj Brigid Gallop. This year our standard was placed on the high alter & our members sat in the quire next to the Lord Mayor - such an honour. 
After marching with the Old Comrades the group enjoyed a good curry lunch at The Mansion House. Another great day for our members.
The Cenotaph.
 
On a beautiful sunny autumn morning 7 members joined the QAs to march past the Cenotaph. There was a good turn out this year. We were delighted to meet up again with the ladies from Newcastle.  Major Jacqueline Hall was interviewed by the BBC about her experience in Afghanistan.  This year we were at the very back of the parade but it had it's compensation - we were on the telly! As always, we all were proud to be there particularly as it was the centenary of the Armistice.  
Another Remembrance week gone & I am very proud that branch members are so supportive of the events.
