The Civil Service Reserves Breakfast Reception was hosted by The Rt Hon Gavin Williamson CBE MP, The Secretary of State for Defence, at No 10 Downing Street.
During the reception the SofS for Defence took the time to speak to most of the 150+ Reserves from the Civil Service who were in attendance.

WO2 Jeffery would like to thank Maj Richard Lewis and Maj Ian Macdonald because they have been key enablers of a number of Reserve events, including this reception.
