Food was excellent

Bahrain SD Get-together - September 2009.

Jenny and Errol Gilchrist organised this reunion on Sunday 20th September 2009 at the Orchard Pub in West Ruislip near to the home of their daughter Anne and husband Scouse. Jean met up with Jenny, Errol and daughter Anne, Martin and Monica Overy, Steve and Louise Hamey, Ralph and Lynn Barallon, Bill Hofmann and Tom (Tommy).
Unfortunately we could not get a dog sitter and also John was recovering from a bad back. He, reluctantly, stayed at home to look after our aged spaniel Jilly.
We had a very good Sunday roast and drank to happy memories of times past in Bahrain (The Brit Club may be!|) and there was lots of noise, chat and laughs.
