Members of Exmouth’s Royal British Legion (RBL) were treated to a talk about the Clinton family.

Lord and Lady Clinton were the guests of honour at the RBL’s latest social evening at Wings Bar at the RAFA club.

A packed house was entertained as the lord and lady spoke about the Clinton family and the close connections to the Cold Stream Guards, including three generations of their family who all served in the forces.
