Head Boy James Hewitt McEysson provided the update on activity at the school and our other speakers were the “Dream Team” of Brian Fuller and Arthur Banham - as well as his  reminiscences, Arthur provided an illuminating potted history of the Middlesex Regiment.

The dinner also saw a richly deserved presentation of a scale model of a No.4 rifle to our President, Brian Fuller to mark his long service to the unit.

Thanks as always to Mike Crick for menu cards, Geoff Owen for the drinks arrangements and to Geoff at Halls for the catering.

CRA Dinner 2012

The 8th June 2012 saw only 22 Centarians dining at Southover. The lowest number “since modern records began”. This has subsequently led to a great deal of discussion about the future of the dinner.

Peter Green once said that “as long as at least four Centarians are sitting round a table sharing a meal in good company then there is a CRA dinner”. This is of course true but there are practical (and financial) considerations that mean that the dinner’s success will always be measured by attendance.
