Match Report

The day dawned bright and clear and the troops gathered at the Berkshire prepared for a battle.

In the weeks preceding the match, the team manager adds to his prayers a request for a sudden military engagement in some far flung country; high on logistics requirements but low on bloodshed, leaving only TA and reservists to fulfill this match.

No such luck. Although they only brought one 1 handicapper, and a few 4 handicaps a plethora of brigadiers colonels and majors made up the team.

We were led to the tee with the team talk from Gerry ringing in our ears - Immortal phrases such as "play well" and "have a good game", we felt like THE FEW against the might of the British army.Led by our president with Anthony Ash who won three and two, a stunning victory from James Crickmay and Michael Newman, a fighting half from John Smith and myself, having been two down after 15 holes ,the team came out victorious at 3.5 to 1.5.

A great lunch and unrivalled camaraderie rounded off a great day
