Col Jane Carey Harris arranged a most splendid outing to the Cutler's Company at their Hall in the City of London.  The Cutlers are one of the most ancient livery companies in the city having received their Royal Charter in 1416 from King Henry V and made the swords for the Battle of Agincourt.
 
We were greeted by a The Beadle & were offered a most welcome cuppa before our tour started. We were told about the history of the Company & the importance of the cutting tool. We were also given the history of their hall which has been rebuilt several times. It is a truly beautiful building. All those involved with the tour were obviously proud of their heritage & made it most interesting.
We were then taken into the Court Room & told the story about the Rose water ritual & the passing of the Loving Cup. We enacted this which was followed by the passing of the Madeira decanter & our "Acting Master" Major Karen Ives proposing the toasts. We all then sang the National Anthem.
 
After our fascinating tour we were treated to a wonderful lunch preceded by a glass of Champagne. The menu that Col Jane had chosen was delicious & enjoyed by all. Of course, there was fine wine to accompany the meal which was followed by coffee & mints. We were delighted that friends of members & several of our honorary members together with a member from the Welsh Branch & members of the City Volunteers Officers Club were able to join us.
 
This years outing will be remembered as one of our most successful. It was enjoyed by all, not only for what we learnt, but because of the enthusiasm of those who proudly told us about their livery company.
