Reception and Beating Retreat to mark the retirement of Dame Mary Fagan DCVO JP – 9th September

I was pleased to be invited to attend a prestigious ceremony honouring Dame Mary for her 20 years of service to Hampshire as the Lord Lieutenant. The ceremony was a Beating Retreat by the Band of the Scots Guard held in front of the Great Hall in Winchester.

This is a time honoured ceremony and was used to mark Dame Mary’s retreat after her 20 years of service. The Scots Guards marched and played military music and it was an incredible spectacle. Only we British can do this so well!
