It was the Aden Veterans Association's Fenland branch annual reunion dinner - and it attracted members from as far away as London and Gloucester.
"The Branch would like to thank the staff of the Oliver Cromwell for an excellent meal, their courtesy and expertise through-out the evening," said branch member Terry Fowler.
