151 Regiment


The 151 Regiment Oficers' Mess Guest Night was, on this occasion, held in the delightful setting of Amport House near Andover. Home of the Army Chaplaincy, and housing their museum, the house is located in splendid grounds and surrounded by delightful gardens. However, the most outstanding feature of the weekend was, as always, the hospitality shown to us by the officers of 151 Regiment led by Commanding Officer Lt Col Adrian Lee.

Starting at 4pm with tea, this gave us the opportunity to stroll around the gardens and later visit the museum which covers the history of British Army Chaplaincy, a role that dates back to 338 AD. And so to the dinner where I had the opportunity to thank Lt Col Adrian Lee for his support in developing the relationship between our two organisations, and to wish him all the best for his career as he is moving on in October.

As always, we later retired to the bar where conversations and fellowship continued late into the night. However, this did not deter people from breakfast the following morning which, as might be expected, was a full English. As always an excellent occasion and much thanks to Liveryman Hugh West for the work he put in as Event Director.
