Saturday 29th May 2010, saw the AMOC celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the Club in style at the Banqueting House, Whitehall in London. Below are a selection of photographs from the evening.

A Taittinger Champagne reception started the evening in the Undercroft of the Hall. Members of the Company of Pikemen & Musketeers, who wear the uniform of the period of Charles I and serve as the Lord Mayor's bodyguard, were present and had some interesting stories to tell.

The Band of the Scots Guards provided a wonder display of pageantry, which had everyone on their feet clapping in time to the rousing music.
