Thank you so much Sir Ranulph Fiennes for marking SES's 50th Anniversary last night with a gripping (and extremely funny) talk about his expeditions and world record challenges after a delicious dinner kindly hosted by The Queen's Club. Each guest table was hosted by a SES Explorer including Vanessa O'Brien, George Bullard, Charlie Walker, Sadie Whitelocks, Lucy Shepherd and SES's Chairman Neil Laughton as well as SES Founder and Honorary President Colonel John Blashford-Snell CBE.
