Roger in RDHS e-newsletter!

See below!    As a colleague of Roger commented :

"Apologies but couldn't help but smile reading the Dip Rat newsletter (prior to scrolling down) "See left for a brief flavour of the presentation" and then scroll slowly down from the top Roger Messenger -  "Age and Obsolescence" - surely not!"

Canine Partners - Roger's chosen charity

Roger writes, "My chosen charity is Canine Partners and a donation site has been opened up for me. There is an email link and a short video on their website.

"Interestingly they are now providing dogs to ex service personnel injured or invalided in action – which links through to Kerry's Help for Heroes from last year."

You can donate to Roger's charity at 

West Midlands Association Dinner Dance

Roger, in his capacity as IRRV President, attended the IRRV West Midlands Association Dinner Dance last weekend.

Tegova Autumn Assembly in Cluj - Transylvania

Below are a couple of photographs taken during the Tegova Autumn Assembly in Cluj - Transylvania - which took place a couple of weeks ago. 

Geoff Fisher, former IRRV President, and David Magor, IRRV Chief Executive, are in the assembled company, along with Roger who is Tegova Chairman. 

The photos are taken at The Football stadium – the team having been quite famous a few years ago.

Roger comments, "The highlight, apart from the meetings, was a visit to a former salt mine where we descended 17 floors underground and listened to a solo violin recital in an amphitheatre that had been created in the main chamber."
