I wish to convey my thanks to all those who attended the SCLI/LI/RIFLES Reunion held at The Lawns social club Taunton last Saturday evening. Your presence and camaraderie produced a truly superb evening. Attendance this year was around 240 which was the largest gathering so far, with a high proportion being former 1LI personnel.

As far as I was aware, (unless you tell me otherwise) there was no complaints regarding the quality or quantity of the buffet, or the service provided by the bar staff. I was concerned about the buffet side initially, when having ordered a set number with Liz the caterer, a further 25 persons turned up (unannounced) and paid on the door. Unfortunately you can't cater for that.

I have booked this venue for the 2016 reunion, so the date for your diary is Saturday 23rd April.
If anyone wishes to contact me so that there details can be added to our data base for future invitations, my point of contact is through the webmaster of this website.

Again my thanks to all who attended and I look forward to seeing you again next year.

To all those former 1 LI men who attended the SCLI,LI, RIFLES Reunion at Taunton in April.

May I say how great it was to welcome so many of you to the reunion. I had met some of you before when you had attended previous reunions at Taunton, but this year it was something special. On this occasion there was a much greater number who's service had purely been with 1LI in attendance. Much of this was down to the message I believe, that your Chairman Bill Bearham, kindly displayed on my behalf on the events page of your website. I estimated that approximately 60 in number were former 1LI men out of the total of just over 200. I hope that next year, there may be even more from your Battalion attending on Saturday 25th April, which is the date of the next reunion. The Lawns Social Club is already booked as the venue, and providing nothing untoward occurs with the Club, I look forward to seeing you all in 2015.

May I wish all of you good health and THANK YOU ALL for making it so special.
Lawrie Hodges. Organiser of the Reunion in conjunction with The Rifles Office Taunton.
