Please join us for this special annual event and the opportunity to meet with other GA members and enjoy the wonderful environment of the Cavalry and Guards Club.

The Gallipoli Association Autumn AGM will start at 11.00 at the Cavalry and Guards Club, 127 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PY followed by a pre-lunch drinks reception at 12.30.

The Cavalry and Guards Club can accommodate 60 for lunch, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Unfortunately, we have had to raise the price to £60 per head to cover costs, but this includes the pre-lunchtime drinks, a two-course lunch, wine and coffee.

The Club has a Formal Dress Code requirement. Jacket and Tie for the gentlemen and smart attire for the ladies. No jeans or trainers.

The AGM is for members only, but guests are invited to join them for lunch.

Our special guest speaker will be Air Commodore John Pye, RAF (Ret’d).

John Pye spent over thirty years as an RAF logistician, mixing jobs around UK and in Whitehall with tours in Libya, Singapore, Kathmandu and Turkey.  Retiring as an air commodore, John spent ten years on the board of the British Antarctic Survey – responsible for operations, logistics and corporate services. A Trustee of the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust, he became Chair in September 2020. John has been an Independent Member of a Police Authority and a NHS Trust Non-Executive Director. He chairs an audit & governance committee for a mayoral Combined Authority. He is member of the Royal College of Defence Studies, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a BAS Club member. Travel to far flung places is high on his list of interests, heightened by his overland journey from Kathmandu to London in 1974.
