The speaker at the meeting of Rotary Club of Kendal on 30th March was Ken Thwaites, one of their own members, who gave another talk on his experiences whilst serving in the Royal Marines and the Cumbria Police Force.
He regaled us with stories, both serious and humorous, about the many incidents he encountered whilst on duty. These ranged from things that happened in British Guiana to ones whilst patrolling Lake Windermere as Lake Warden.
He finished by giving the following quote; two things in life are certain – one is you are born and two is you die! The bit in the middle is the interesting bit!
