As I reflect on a very special year I wonder how a report on it might be interesting for readers and the records of the Livery. It should not be a long winded diary of the year so I have attached the personal diary I made over the year, comprising the 115 events, meetings etc. attended. Also I attach my Curriculum Vitae which was used by our Clerk, Robin House, to tell other companies and hosts something about the 2014 Master. It is therefore my intention to focus on the especially interesting features of my year rather than the regular events and business of our Livery. Every Master’s year has a rather unique characteristic and in 2014 there was much reflection and information about the event 100 years earlier: being the outbreak of the Great War.
