REGIMENTAL BAND, APRIL 2014 REUNION.

There is footage of the band at the Reunion, on the Facebook page of the 14th/20th 'Old Boys' site.

For the life of me I can not figure out, how to download it to Noah's Arc, which I would really like to do.

Until I do sort out how to do it, it can be found, following this link to the 14th/20th 'Old Boys' Facebook site

Click on>>>>>>>>>> https://www.facebook.com/groups/58511775214/ and click on request to join.

The Facebook site, is not in 'Competition' with Noah's Arc, and never will be, it is 'In addition to'.

Noah's Arc, is, was, and always will be the Flagship !!
If you can stay calm when all around you is in Chaos, Then you have not properly understood the Situation!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Full marks to Bob and the Committee for the best ever reunion and the best attended!
The Regimental Band were fantastic and the whole weekend was great.
Those who didn't attend don't know what they missed, so Pam and I will see you all next year for another 'best ever' reunion!!

Thanks again for all your hard work.

Harry and Pam

I can only say what every one else has been saying Absolutely Brilliant Week-end made only better by the Friends and Company some not seen since I don't know when turning up.
Well done to Bob,Linda and the Committee for all your Efforts it makes the next Re-union another week-end to look forward to and it seems we are not the only ones to think that judging by the amount of people who have booked for next year.
Once again Thanks to every one for a Fantastic Week-end and I hope every one arrived back home safe and sound.
All the Best
Alan and Isabel.

I would like to take a moment to all Hawks.
I would like to give a Noah's Arc commendation to a Hawk that gave up his Saturday evening to a Hawk that is not as fortunate as ourselves he found him sitting on his own not as able as us he stayed with him and kept him company throughout his stay and saw him to his hotel and not until then joined in with us I will not mention the persons name he supported for it is not for me to do so but he was a loved member of the regiment in my time. In conclusion I will say.
There is only one Johnny Morris my dearest and closest friend HOOOOZZAAAR Johnny
Phil I am not worthy

Well said Quassie
I know exactly who you mean and like you will not mention his name, Well done to Johnny Morris who did all he could to get as many people to go and either talk or sit with this person.
Once again well done that Man Johnny Morris.
