Ladies and Gentlemen,
In my capacity as the Regimental Colonel, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend a reception for the families of our fallen gunners following the Day of Honour Ceremony. The intent is to provide a venue to solemnly honour our fallen and acknowledge their families in a more intimate setting. In particular, this event will allow the families to meet the CoC of the Royal Regt, and to talk to gunners who may have served with their loved ones. It will also serve as an opportunity to show the familes that their loved ones are still very much in our thoughts. The Colonel Commandant and the Senior Serving Gunner, as well as other senior members of the Regt will be in attendance.
