Re: NOVEMBER 19th/20th 2011 Vietnam

Gentlemen, I very much regret that I will not be able to take part in the Vietnam game in November due to meetings all day in Edinburgh on the Friday and heading south early on the Sunday morning.

Gentlemen, Charles jnr is back from Afghan on R&R in early March and has asked me if he could take part in the game on 12/13 March.
