You are cordially invited to attend the London Mark Provincial Mess Annual Luncheon to be held at Bakers’ Hall, Harp Lane, London EC3R 6DP on Friday, 6 October 2023. The doors will open at 11:30 & members are invited for a pre-lunch drink. Members must be seated by 12:00 as the talk will commence at 12:15.
The speaker is V.W. Bro. Surg.Cdr, Nigel Scott-Moncrieff, RN, PGMO, PDepGDC. His talk will be entitled “Memories of Her Majesty’s Yacht Britannia and other stories”.
Members of the Mess are encouraged to invite Craft and Mark Brethren not only to hear the speaker but to experience at first hand the legendary friendliness of London Mark in the beautiful and historic Bakers’ Hall.
The cost of the event remains at £65.00 which includes a three-course lunch with cheese & biscuits, half a bottle of wine and 10 Year Old Tawny Port. As ever, the lunch will be informal: lounge suit, no regalia and no seating plan.
