Customs from other companies

I am noticing different customs in different companies. For example at the Tax Advisers' dinner they had a grace, spoken by their chaplain in Latin, which mentions that Jesus was born in Bethlehem because of a tax census!

The Master thanked the head chef by "taking wine" (i.e. a personal toast) with her at the end of dinner.

The commanding officer of their affiliated Royal Naval ship becomes a Companion of the Company - a nice phrase.
