St Patrick's Party
This year's St Patrick's Party was held at the London Scottish Golf Club on Wimbledon Common. We had a fantastic turn out from the band members, as well as some of our supporters. Music was ably provided throughout the evening by Green Diesel who gave a sterling performance once more. We even set a new record for the farthest distance travelled to one of our social events - roughly 3,325 miles from Massachusetts, USA!!
Tower of London
Our traditional first job of the year is parading with the Royal Military Police Association's London Branch for their annual Church Parade. This year, like every year, it was a brisk morning and although the forecasters threatened rain it remained dry! The band sounded in good form anf following the parade did a short set of tunes outside the Yeoman Warder's Club for parade members and members of the public. We were also fortunate to be joined by 2 members of the SHZK and from Springe, Germany.
The Band will be stood down from our Annual Christmas Dinner until the first practise in January, which will be announced on the front page of this website. Our first job of the year will be the annual Church Parade for the Royal Military Police at HM Tower of London - more details on our diary page.
The band celebrated the end of 2010 with a lovely dinner in the prestigious East India Club on St James's Square, Central London. A full 4 course meal was enjoyed by all, with frequent complaints of there being too much food on the plate!! It is hoped that we can enjoy future meals in the club.
