Saturday 14 October, 7.00 for 7.30 pm £30
The 11th October 2017 is the 220th Anniversary of The Battle of Camperdown. This battle was fought in 1797 between the British North Sea Fleet and a Dutch Navy Fleet. It was an important and resounding British victory. Admiral Adam Duncan, who was born and educated in Dundee, commanded the British North Sea Fleet and Vice Admiral Jan de Winter the Dutch Fleet.
The Royal Scots Club will mark the anniversary of the battle with a dinner in the Hepburn Suite on Saturday 14th October. The guest speaker will be Lt Comd (Retd) Dairmid Gunn RN who will describe the battle, its military and political significance and at the same time tell us a good deal about Admiral Duncan, one of Scotland’s most famous sons.
We are delighted to announce that a Corps of Drums from The Band of HM Royal Marines Scotland will play during the evening and their performance will include the renowned and spectacular Ceremonial Mess Meetings Display.
Timings are 7pm for 7.30pm. Dress for the evening is black tie or mess kit. Decorations may be worn where appropriate. The cost of the dinner is £30 and includes a drinks reception before dinner.
