We lunched at Wellington Barracks at the kind invitation of David Saunders and his wife. I served with him in Wuppertal-Elberfeld in 1950-51, when I was doing my national service - and it was great to see him again after all those years, as well as to enter Wellington Barracks for the first time since 1950. HRH Prince Charles attended the lunch and we had the honour of meeting him. The service in the Guards Chapel was very moving, and the music wonderful. Then I marched with other former offoicers to Horseguards where we marched past Prince Charles.
