Veterans Breakfast Armed Forces Day 2018

The Veterans Breakfast at Eat n Treats fell on Saturday 30th June 2018 which coincided with Armed Forces Day

There was a good turn out as always with apologies from those who could not make it this month due to holidays and work commitments.

The staff at Eat n Treats as always were brilliant and had made 2 cakes for the anniversary.

We all had a fulfilling breakfast with loads of tea n coffee and reminisced about old times while in service and new ventures that lie ahead. The atmosphere and companionship at these events as always bring the best wisecracks about each others units (friendly of course). We had a couple of new faces this month that popped in for the Armed Forces Day, Liam McArthur and Alistair Carmichael joined us for breakfast.

Once again I can only enthuse about these meetings. If you are a veteran or still serving, we are here to welcome/help you and your partners on the last Saturday of each month, from 09.00am till approx 11.30am.

PS: The cake was delicious, the remaining cake was taken by Bob (beangate Bob) to the Kirkwall branch of Royal British Legion.
