Annually, at the close of the training period and just before the Holiday Season is upon them all, the Officers gather at Home Station, share a sit-down supper, update each other on what they have planned to do over the next couple of weeks, reflect on everything that they were involved with as the year closes and prepare for the upcoming training calendrer.
Near the end of the evening, they gather next to the piano and exchange a small gift. One of the very few times in the mess they are dressed for the family occasion.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all. See you in the New Year.
The Roving Guardsman
