Next years meet is friday 4th August 2017 at Brickhampton golf club , Cheltenham ,
Captain (RTD) Len Keeling
When I was invited to present the prizes at the Slashers golf society annual prize giving, I was extremely proud and honoured, Firstly to bie the first Ex RSM to be considered by the committee , I am an avid supporter of this event which attracts up to 120 ex Glosters every year from all ranks and has successfully replaced the annual regimental reunions.
I was particularly touched by the warm reception I received especially since I was lucky to have been able to attend having recently survived a heart attack and had just got back into my golf.
We remain a tight-nit family we Glosters and the civilians that are invited to play in this tournament are amazed and impressed not only at the organisation but the comradeship , friendship and that close bond hat we all have and it is this Slashers event that allows us to assemble every year and greet , swop family news and tell the same old war stories and love every minute of it.
Finally I would like to thank the committee for this opportunity and for allowing me to do a separate presentation in a way of thank you to the two medical students who saved my life on that fateful day in March last year it certainly made their day and an old man very happy.
