IJLB REUNION - Sat 06 June 2015.

Any former IJLB Oswestry out there interested in this? Time is running out to get a seat. I've booked mine!

As has become our custom, the core of the Reunion will be on Saturday 6thJune 2015 and will start at the Oswestry Rugby Club, which is the old IJLB Officers Mess. This is an informal get together starting at 1200hrs until about 1600hrs. We will have to fit in an AGM for the Association Members. More details of this later.
In the evening we have a semi-formal Dinner at the Wynnstay Hotel, Oswestry. This starts at 1930hrs. The cost will be in the region of £25-£30 per head depending on final menu.

In past gatherings, there have been additions such as Golf on the Friday afternoon and a Curry get together on the Friday Night. Depending on how long people stay we can do a visit to the renowned Chirk Aqueduct on Sunday around Lunch Time. Here you can imagine they have halved the size of the drop from when you abseiled. (If you were at Oswestry).

I would like to thank Rab Perry and the committee of the Folkstone branch of the association for yet another great function held on 12th December 2014.

This comprised of a 3 course Christmas dinner with waiter service and a choice of 3 meats and a vegetarian choice of excellent quality.

Entertainment consisted of The Folkstone Pipes & Drums and a disco with a raffle with some really good prizes.

This did not organise its self so a big thanks from Annita & I for a great night.

Sad news, Geordie- he was a good man indeed, and I'd no idea he made Lt Col....He was a real stalwart in the ,not very successful!, Bn. hockey team, on the right wing. A charming gentleman, always with a big smile and a willingness to help. His only fear was taking guard mounting on the square, as he was hopeless at drill!

It is with great sadness that I inform the older members of the Regiment that Barry George MBE (Lt Col REME) who was the BN Armourer in Berlin 74-76 tour passed away in his sleep. Unfortunately this took place in July this year but I have just been informed. Barry was a fantastic individual and a great Borderer. He played a number of sports for the Bn but his love was Hockey. I have passed mine & Dorothy's condolences to Janet his lovely wife and informed her of my intention to publish this notice on the website. RIP Barry

I can scan them and e mail them to you. I come home to Galashiels each year and want to visit the museum next time

I?m timothy candy by name. I live in USA, I want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr james best who lend me an unsecured loan of $...90,000 under 7hours last week without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him via
i am using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don?t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders, I will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from james best, I pray that God should give him long life. God bless him forever for the good things he has done in my life. once again here is the company
