Greetings gentlemen and welcome to the Anglo-Dutch Dispatch. Don't forget that we have our quite unique London Gazette, which is updated regularly with all our Armies' news and information. We have had a few new members start their training over the past months, welcome gentlemen, which has alleviated fears over membership and seems to be on the upů please continue badgering friends and relatives and get them to look at OUR club.
Gentlemen over the past few months there has been some major changes within the Army due to the changing front in France. Brig Gen Sir Tony Dobson KT has step down as CiC. Col Sir Neil Henderson KG has moved from the Post of OC RMA to a posting in Horse Guards. We all wish him well. At this time of taking over the Army I have no moves in mind to change anything within the Army. That is it for now chaps; it remains for me to wish you all great gaming!!
This has been everybody's favourite subject. So I have now decided to
keep this in for this issue.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce the following promotions, decorations and commissions and postings.
God save King George!!
