On 16th July, twenty-six IWP members, associates and two grandsons enjoyed a spectacular dolphin-watching trip, passing through the Sado Estuary and out into the Atlantic Ocean. The majority of the party having departed Cascais by coach mid-morning, we split into groups for our lunch stop upon arrival in Sétubal. Some opted for a brief wander around Livramento indoor market before eating then we all boarded the catamaran Vertigem Azul at the nearby dock.

This month we highlight:
Thank you so much for reading us each month!
For many years we have known that Major Bull did not serve in the British Army, but did serve in the Portuguese army on the side of the Liberals during the Civil War that lasted from 1828 to 1834. We know he resigned and later asked to be reinstated and that he retired to Monforte, where he died on 14 th February 1850.
Major Nick Hallidie welcomed all attending this Ceremony and directed his remarks as follows:
“Your Excellency, Sr Presidente da Camara Municipal de Elvas, Ladies and gentlemen, Senhores e Senhoras, distinguished guests – Welcome!
As you all know, old soldiers never die – they simply fade away – and so I am grateful to Stewart Streeting, who is known to many of you, for bearing some of the brunt for me in recent years.”
