Return to Dieppe Series - Royal Hospital at Chelsea

The first official function was "The Beating of Retreat" at the Royal Hospital at Chelsea, a unique home and hospital for indigent members of the British Armed Forces. The 350 residents were treated to a first-class concert by our Band and in return provided a dinner and some first-class hospitality in their lovely Mess (in a hospital!).
