  1. Dear Globetrotters,

    Please accept my sincerest apologies for letting you down but as happens in life, and when we travel, things don’t always turn out as planned. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have currently got no speakers available for Saturday. All my ‘reserves’ are either travelling, not available, not ready or unwell. So, in the spirit of the amazing club that we are, I am hoping that *YOU* can help out.

    *Do you have a talk? Long or short?*

    Time is of the essence so please let myself or Paul Roberts know ASAP and I will do my best to co-ordinate your submissions.

    Speaking means free entry, a free guest and a small token of

    I hope to hear from you soon and I’m sure you will be pleased to know the next six months are almost fully booked with speakers.

    With hopeful heart,

  2. Despite what Jacqui wrote, those who filled the gaps were well worth coming from Bournemouth to London for.

    My wife Joyce bought a lovely blue Thai silk suit when we were in the country a few years back. Did Jim Thompson deliberately disappear, rather than being bumped off for his CIA activities? Or was it even suicide?

    Re Devil’s Island – include me out. As for Mongolia, in a corner of the lounge is a two feet high at his ears Mongolian horse in some sort of clay and crudely painted. Joyce got him with the base broken from a shop selling oriental objects in Kensington and stuck him together again! We named him Yang.
