Reference is my Reunion letter Dated 29 February 2012, para 27.

 Dear all, there are some very mixed messages appearing on the various social web sites on the subject of the Reunion of 2013.

It is important to stress to as many people as you can that the LI Committee have agreed that the Reunion will take place 7th to 9th June at Copthorne Barracks.

It is the intention of Lt Gen Brims to form a sub committee to carry out a study into future reunions. This study will look at all aspects and seek advice and suggestions from all Light Infantrymen including those on social networking sites. The support of all Light Infantrymen is vital to the future of the Reunion.
