The Annual Re-union, 5th September 2011

Thanks to the sterling work of the Club Committee, we met once again at the Imperial Hotel and a super time was had by all.

One of the highlights of the evening was provided by guest speaker Martin Sugarman who gave us a masterly account of Jack Nissenthal's actions during the famous Dieppe Raid of August 1942.

Martin, Archivist to AJEX and a long time personal friend, has recently written a fine book "Fighting Back" which covers the contribution made my British Jewry in WW2 and copies of this book were eagerly snapped up by a very appreciative audience.

We look forward to next year's re-union...... don't miss it !

Amongst the snaps taken and pictured above were Alfie Mendosa, a sprightly 92 year old and seen here with Martin Sugarman and I, and we were once again delighted to see Syd Tabor. Joe Brandez was also at my table with his son Simon and that's him making one of the evening's toasts.

The Hiller boys once again closed the evening to a very appreciative audience.

Finally, if any readers of this Blog have a favourite picture taken at the function send them to me as an e-mail attachment and I will publish them here.
