As has become our custom the core of the Reunion will be on Saturday 6thJune 2015 and will start at the Oswestry Rugby Club, which is the old IJLB Officers Mess. This is an informal get together starting at 1200hrs until about 1600hrs. We will have to fit in an AGM for the Association Members. More details of this later.
In the evening we have a semi formal Dinner at the Wynnstay Hotel, Oswestry. This from 1930hrs. The cost will be in the region of £25-£30 per head depending on final menu.
In past get togethers there has been add ons such as Golf on the Friday afternoon and a Curry get together on the Friday Night. Depending on how long people stay we can do a visit to the renowned Chirk Aqueduct on Sun around Lunch Time. Here you can imagine they have halved the size of the drop from when you abseiled. (If you were at Oswestry).
While at the Rugby Club there is an opportunity to visit the Memorial Garden at the Rugby Club on the site of the old armoury. This was completed on behalf of a former Junior, Neil Wilson who started the project and sadly died before its completion. The Association took it on to finish it for his family. It's a nice tranquil spot.
In 2009 the Association Paraded through Oswestry to dedicate a Memorial in Cae Glas Park to the Infantry Juniors Leaders Battalion and those of our comrades who gave their lives in service.
Close to 300 Juniors marched through Oswestry. The drill was really good.
The Memorial and Inscription. Money was raised from Individuals and some Regimental Associations.
