It looked to be a really terrible choice of day for the party with England in the World Cup Quarter Finals. But this overlooked the enterprising person who set up a TV screen in front of the BBQ. The barbecue chefs were again Ken Hickling and Mark Wakeling. Josephine Wakeling supplied the vegetarian meals and Richard Ross helped with the cooking. Chris Bull ran the children’s games and Liz Cox continued her career of face painting.

Richard Ross brought along a display about the Swaythling Remount Depot. By a remarkable coincidence, Richard wrote an undergraduate thesis on the British Remount Service, little knowing that he would come to live in Swaythling.
