The sixteenth Annual Dinner was held at the Hotel Metropole, Leeds, on 18th November, 1922. The President, Mr. J. C. Atkinson, was in the chair, and over 90 members and guests were present. The principal guest was Dr. T. H. Somervell, just returned from India, who gave a most interesting address on the Mount Everest Expedition, illustrated by lantern slides, including the views he obtained during the final climb, which had not been previously shown in England. The kindred clubs were represented by Mr. W. A. Brigg, Alpine club; Mr. Worsdell, Scottish Mountaineering Club; Mr. R. K. Evans, Rucksack Club; Mr. Wilson Butler, Fell and Rock Climbing Club; Mr. Myles Mathews, Climbers' Club; and Mr. C. D. Yeomans, Derbyshire Pennine Club.

Mr. C. Scriven, one of the earliest members and most generous supporters of the Club, who has served as Treasurer and as Vice-president, has been elected an Honorary Member.

The Club consists of 11 honorary and 123 ordinary members.

With deep regret we record the death of two of our members during the year. Our President, Mr. J. C. Atkinson, met with a fatal accident at Ilkley in May, at the age of 67, and Col. C. R. B. Wingfield, one of our most active members, died in February at the early age of 49. The loss of two such personalities is very grievous.
