Can anyone tell me anything about this fine looking Tenth Hussars.
John Willoughby attended the Old Comrades Dinner at the Holburn Restaurant on Tuesday June 3rd 1913. In his proposal of the Toast of "The Colonels, Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Men of the Regiment" Viscount Valentia said "We have even got two veterans who served in the Crimea amongst us, Mr Crone and John Willoughby. We are very proud to see them here tonight, and I think, although the young men who join the Regiment now may be better instructed and may drink less, yet at the same time we all belong to the same Regiment, and they can never say they are better than us."
This photograph is prominent in the report of the dinner,
As a matter of interest, the menu was Croute-au-Pot, Andalouse Cream, Boiled Turbot with Hollandaise Sauce, Whitebait, Larded Fillet of Beef a la Broche, Chateau Potatoes, French Beans Maitre d'Hotel, Roast Chicken with Watercress Salad,
"X R H" Pudding, Strawberry and Vanilla Ice, Wafers, Dessert.
Sorry, accents missing, no French spellcheck on the forum I think)
