James Clark Medal Lunch


The 2017 James Clark Medal lunch was held on Thursday 19 October. The event is held every year at the ICE and once again guests enjoyed an excellent meal in fine surroundings.

Attendees numbered nineteen recipients of the medal, including this year’s awardee, Josie Gallagher, and a further eleven members of the BTS Committee. As would be expected from such a gathering of tunnelling grandees, there were plenty of tunnels dug and re-dug during the course of the meal, and many old friends remembered. Glasses were raised to Doug Allenby, who was sadly missing owing to ill health.
