Election Day June 8th 2017 will also be memorable for another reason. The Chairman’s Election escape day saw 9 club members look around the wonderful English Heritage property Apsley House, No1 London. Home of the current Duke of Wellington and the last Dukes going back including the ex-Prime Minister who was famous for defeating Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. Tony our private guide gave the members a wonderful insight into the changes the property has had over the 200 years and the life and time of the famous Duke of Wellington.
After the tour we enjoyed the excellent Club Secretary’s lunch at the Victory Services Club in Seymour Street, W1. The VSC often hosts lunches and functions for the 39 Club and a good few of the 39 Club are members, many thanks to the catering team at the VSC for looking after us and providing a superbly fine lunch.
