Our speakers this year were Ian Bone, Gary Tucker as the Head in his own right and Olaf Dudley who broke with tradition by providing a speech illustrated with images from his active service in Iraq during and after the Gulf War.

Thanks as always to Mike Crick for his assistance with menu cards, Geoff Owen for the drinks arrangements and to Pierre for the catering.

CRA Dinner 2005

35 Centarians and their guests sat down to dine on the 13th May 2005 at Southover. A number of regulars were unable to attend and the turnout from serving cadets was disappointing after the healthy attendance in recent years. This is the first downturn in numbers since 2001 and I hope that the success of the dinner this year will stop this from turning into a trend. This was our first year with a new caterer, the highly talented Pierre, a Barnet based Frenchman who managed to beat previous prices despite providing an excellent four-course meal with canapés.
