Annual Dinner and the Knights’ Tour

The 13th Hamilton Russell Annual Dinner was held at The Reform on 10 September.

The event was held in the splendid Library.

During the evening Peter Rust, captain of the 2018/9 season’s winners the MCC was presented with the Hamilton Russell Cup by Henry McWatters, the Secretary of the previous season’s winners the RAC.

On 16 September, we held the sixth annual Knights’ Tour. A great time was had by all. We had four great locations: The Reform, The Athenaeum, the RAC, and, for the first time, the Army & Navy.

Many thanks to Robert Lipscomb for arranging for the Rag to be one of the hosts – a very welcome addition. Thanks also to Peter Lee of The Athenaeum and Henry McWatters of the RAC for all their help.

The evening was topped off with a splendid dinner at The Athenaeum.
