Honourable Artillery Company, Armoury House . The invitation said 'dress to impress' so I wore the silk velvet jacket I made over 20 years ago and the Syrian silk scarf I bought in Aleppo in 2000. I haven't really worn it much partly because it's very large but also the tassels were rather tatty. I've now removed these and look forward to wearing it more often. It was also appropriate for the event as Adam and Kate have special memories of the trip they took to Syria with their children when they were small and the kindness and hospitality they met on their travels. The Aleppo I knew no longer exists, I feel so sad wondering what happened to the lovely people I met.
It was a privilege to look round the building and the small museum had been opened specially for us.
Some fascinating sketchbooks in the 1914-18 display showing intricate drawings of terrain and topography.
