My very dear school friend Sheenagh Urquhart was in attendance on this occasion and is the lady wearing the White Hat. We keep in touch on a regular basis as our friendship began way back in the late thirties in a legendary area namely, Naini Tal in the lower Himalayas at a Girls College called
All Saints.
