RLC25 draws to a fitting close

RLC25

The RLC anniversary year RLC25 has drawn to a fitting close at the Guildhall in London.

On 21 Mar members of The RLC gathered to bring to a close RLC25 and look to the next 25 years and beyond.

The event was the inspiration of the Colonel RLC, Col Colin Francis MBE and took place at the Guildhall in the City of London.

The guest list reflected the joint environment within which military logisticians now work, not only other arms and services but also the civilian and contractual component.

The evening commenced with a Beating Retreat by the Band of The RLC and was followed by 450 plus diners sitting down to a fabulous five course meal in the banqueting hall of this historic building.

During the evening guests were entertained by the Corps of Drums, the Fujian Choir and the Gurkha Khukris Dance.

HRH, The Princess Royal was in attendance along with MGL, the recently retired Lt Gen Sir Mark Poffley KCB OBE. It was a fitting end to The RLC25 anniversary year and an opportunity to celebrate the Corp’s bright future.
