The Committee is mindful of the fact that fellow officers have been seeking guidance from the Secretary about those they are considering inviting as their guests to Club dinners; accordingly the Committee has approved the following guidance for the use of members.

The primary principle is to maintain the ethos of the Club and avoid endangering or disturbing the welfare, good feeling, honour or conviviality of Club occasions.

No one eligible for membership may normally be a guest except as provided for in Rule I.

Members may not normally invite more than two guests each. Members wishing to invite more than two guests should consult the Secretary who may admit them at his discretion. When a capacity attendance is expected the Committee may restrict members to one guest each.

Except for Founders’ Day dinner which will continue to be for members only, there are no restrictions on the type of guests with spouses and partners warmly welcome at each Members’ guest night dinner.



This year’s AGM will take place on Thursday 5 September 2024 in HMS COLLINGWOOD at 1800. The guest speaker will be announced nearer the time. The event will follow recent year’s style with a combined in person/Zoom event; members are, however, much encouraged to attend in person. Drinks and a light buffet will be available at no charge to those attending..
