Dornoch

                   The Dornoch Reunion Lunch 

This very enjoyable event was organized by Duncan and Alison
Allan and no fault could be found in the total arrangements-
thank you both for a very successful event.

The editor and his lady had the privilege of attending this reunion
lunch at the Royal Dornoch Golf Club---the meal was absolutely first
class and the menu is shown below with the main course being  a
choice between Breast of Chicken and a Goan Prawn curry.They
obviously employ a very skilled chef as all food served was of the
best quality.

Twenty eight attended and copies of the pages of the menu are
shown below.

(a salute to the garden labour)

Ek swira, do pat

Kharjan ya Banarhat

Khabisukh,  Khabisukh

Char bagan kamjari 

and for those with memory problems Duncan kindly supplied the translation

(We) pluck two leaves and a bud

on tea gardens (where we work)

sometimes (work) is easy, sometimes hard,

working on tea gardens
