THE CRUICKSHANK DINNER – FRIDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 2018

Dear Borderer,

Once again this popular evening will be held in the Buccleuch Arms Hotel at St. Boswells and because of the generosity of the late Captain Cruickshank from Selkirk, we are able to keep the cost down to £19.00 per head which will cover a three course Dinner and wine.

Our guest speaker this year will be that well known after dinner speaker, Sir Johnny Scott, a natural historian, broadcaster, columnist, countryside campaigner and farmer, who came to fame with a television series with Clarissa Dickson Wright.

Musical accompaniment for the evening will be provided by Pipe Major Kevin Turnbull and hopefully a surprise entertainer.

Timings will be 7pm for Dinner at 7.30pm and the dress code for the evening will be jacket and tie. As usual there will be a pay bar before and after dinner.

This Dinner is open to all ranks who served in the Regiment, whether as a Regular, TA or ACF and you are also most welcome to bring a guest(s) to this event. There will be no seating plan and it is our intention to sit at round tables of ten.

I would be most grateful if you could complete the attached form and return with payment by no later than Friday 16th November 2018.

C.G.O. Hogg
Chairman
