Remembrance Line supports Nepalese earthquake appeal
Last Thursday evening (28th May) RLA members were privileged to have Gurkha community leader Dhan Gurung attend our monthly meeting and deliver a talk on the latest situation in Nepal after the recent devastating Earthquake. He updated us on the fantastic response to the earthquake appeal and described the complexities of distributing the aid, a massive task in itself. To round the evening off RLA took the opportunity to present Dhan with a cheque for £300 - our humble contribution to the huge relief operation in the disaster area. The unveiling of the new Gurkha memorial later on this summer will be all the more poignant. We wish the Gurkha community and their families in Nepal the very best for the speedy recovery of their homeland.

News from Boulogne
A colleague of ours from Boulogne, Jean - Guy Hagelstein has over the last few days noted and photographed the dredger Victor Horta hard at work in and around Boulogne Harbour, keeping it clear for future use. That link with Folkestone is still, in principle, a possibility with the right approach.
