On Saturday 13th October about thirty members and friends met in central London to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph to those who served in Macedonia during (and after) the First World War.
After the brief ceremony the group made its way to the Civil Service Club where, after a sociable lunch, they were treated to a fascinating talk on the Greek political scene before, during and after the campaign. This was presented by Sir Michael Llewellyn-Smith KCVO, CMG , historian, author and former diplomat. But the day couldn’t be all pleasure! There followed the inevitable annual general meeting, although those who stayed to the end were treated to the fun of the traditional raffle which, as always, had an eclectic range of prizes!
The main item of news from the AGM is the election of two new members to the SCS Committee. During the past year we have, sadly, said farewell to two long serving Committee members: Secretary Viv John and Journal Editor Tim Mole. It is a pleasure, then, to be able to introduce our new Secretary, Darren Rolfe, and new Journal Editor, Ian Cochrane. The other Committee members remain the same:
- Chairman – Alan Wakefield
- Treasurer – Ray Brownson
- Membership Secretary – Keith Edmonds
- Web Editor – Robin Braysher
So a full complement to take the Society forward into 2018/19, as we leave the Centenary behind.
