Fes­tive en­ter­tain­ments

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

On Christ­mas Eve the Union Jack Club en­ter­tained to a sup­per and con­cert the naval rat­ings at present sta­tioned here, and those be­long­ing to the town at home on leave. The club’s in­vi­ta­tion was ac­cepted by a large com­pany, all of whom spent a most en­joy­able evening, the pro­ceed­ings from first to last be­ing marked by that ge­nial­ity and warmth of com­rade­ship which have all along char­ac­terised the en­ter­tain­ments held un­der the aus­pices of the Union Jack Club. Sher­iff Mac­mas­ter Camp­bell, pres­i­dent, was in the chair, and ex­pressed the grat­i­fi­ca­tion of the club that they should meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Navy on the eve of the first peace Christ­mas. Ev­ery­one, he said, recog­nised that if there was any fac­tor more than an­other which ren­dered our great vic­tory pos­si­ble, that fac­tor was the Bri­tish Navy, and he trusted that their great work done, the men of the Navy would soon reap those re­wards of peace which they had so rightly earned. The con­cert, which was un­der the di­rec­tion of Mr Munn, Master-at-Arms, was of an ex­ceed­ingly high or­der of merit. The pro­gramme was con­trib­uted to by ser­vice­men and by a num­ber of the ladies as­so­ci­ated with the work of the club, all of whose ef­forts were thor­oughly ap­pre­ci­ated and called forth un­stinted ap­plause.
