A party of 23 of us met at the Bear Cross pub for a meal before going on to the Layard Theatre at Canford school. There we enjoyed a splendid performance by The Band of The Royal Irish Regiment and the Pipes and Drums of The Irish Rifles. Several members commented on the unusual but interesting programme of music. The musicians are all Reservists. Some band members could not get the time off , so the Band Master had to call for assistance from other Irish musicians. We hope that ssafa Dorset will be allocated a band next year, the 21st of such years.
The programme included a note that the ssafa curry lunch at Bryanston School will be on 16th February 2020
