1st Bn Reunion - 13 December

Ray O'Brien and Adrian McAllister

Joe Cherry and Perce Bate

Our last reunion for the year was held on Friday 13 December and what a great turn out for such a wet winter evening. It was a pleasure to welcome two new members to our association family: Perce Bate and Adrian McAllister.


Adrian was introduced by Ray O'Brien. They joined the 1st Bn back in 1964 and served in Osnabrück, Germany. Ray served until 1979, Adrian to '72.


Perce Bate came along as a guest of Alan and David Ferrier and decided to join the association that evening. Perce enjoyed meeting up with Joe Cherry as they both served from 1960-62 in Malta and North Africa.
