Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Liberation of Kuwait at the British Embassy with the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland





A wonderful evening at the British Embassy celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Liberation of Kuwait and the historical friendship between Kuwait & Great Britain. 
Many thanks to the British Ambassador HE Mathew Lodge and his lovely wife, Alexa.

The esteemed dignitaries, Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah and the Minister of Cabinet affairs Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Al-Sabah, kindly regaled the international audience with reflections of their experiences during the liberation of Kuwait and showed their heartfelt appreciation for the British and International participation in liberating their beloved country.

A few tears trickled when seeing the old footage of the occupation and liberation of Kuwait, even 25 years on. 

The Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland were superb. They will be doing a few more spots before leaving;

19th Feb - The Last Night of the Proms at the British Embassy
20th Feb - The Avenues Mall at 3pm starting from Ikea
23rd Feb - Yarmouk Cultural Centre 7pm

I loved their rendition of Pharrel William's 'Happy' and the Bond music.
