In mid-January the Officers of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment held an inaugural Officers’ Curry Lunch, a newly conceived quarterly event to host personnel who support the Regiment. The guest of honour on this occasion was His Excellency the Governor, who attended as Commander-in-Chief, and received an engraved 105 mm shell to mark his time in post.
The Governor decided that this event would be an excellent opportunity to respond in kind and present several of the officers present with their Commissioning scrolls. Those presented were Lieutenant Colonel S Dyson, Captain D Hayton-Williams, Captain L Mauro and Captain A Pearce.
The event also provided the RG with the opportunity to bid a fond farewell to Major Chris Ghio, Major Julian Valverde and Lt Martin Garcia-Magrath.
