One could only describe our evening by the reaction by our guests on arrival into the officers mess dining room as “wow”

Our host the 20 Transport Squadron Royal Logistic Corps, Regent’s Park Barracks and our guest speaker Julia Trustram Eve, Marketing Director, English Wine Producers.

Our table decorated with the company silver, crystal and china certainly set the scene for a truly English Summer evening.
