Bio - During the registration process you will be asked to provide a short bio of what you have been up to since you left Sandhurst, including a favourite memory (Example below). These will be compiled into a booklet for each of you.

Lieutenant Colonel Justin Barry Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. I am still in the Army currently working as CO at the 2nd Army Training Regiment based at Pirbright.  Despite thinking I would only serve 3 years I have yet to stop enjoying what I am doing and am not sure when/if I will leave!  During my time I have served operationally in the usual places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland and Bosnia, and have even managed a couple of years with 42 Commando Royal Marines and 4 months with the Australian Army.  The only significant low point has been the reduction of the Argylls into one company and the formation of the Royal Regiment of Scotland – perhaps inevitable, but hard nonetheless to lose all the history and tradition.  I am married to Lucinda and we have 3 children: Sebastian (9), Miranda (6) and Cosmo (3). Looking forward to catching up with everyone and having a great night! 
Favourite Memory: Lying in a Pl ambush on Final Exercise in Germany which was initiated, by mistake, on a group of unsuspecting German hikers whilst CSgt Owen and Capt Jay Turner were observing from a hunters’ shooting platform.

Photographs - There will be no formal photograph of the evening, but if you do have any from your time at Sandhurst, please email them to me so that I can create a slideshow to be displayed at the reunion.  If you are a member of the Sandhurst Trust, you are able to add your photos to the gallery area of the website for others to see. Alternatively, please email any photos to Sue on membership@sandhursttrust.org

Accommodation - There are some rooms available in the mess which you can book during the registration process.  The cost is for accommodation only, breakfast can be purchased on a 'pay as you dine basis'.
