Tuesday was a busy day starting with the Spectaclemakers Court Luncheon at the Apothecaries Hall – the Spectaclemakers are based at the Hall.
The Master Spectaclemaker sat me on his right, so I had a good view of everything that was going on; and on my right was Assistant Don Grocott and Col Stephen Foakes. They are both closely involved with the Royal Signals Territorial Army and all three kept me well entertained throughout lunch, not forgetting Chrissie Jenkins who was more or less opposite me.
The Master gave a terrific speech which included a very good story about a dancing duck which I must file away for future use.
