There was a festive frosting abroad as we ventured to Clark's Pie Shop for our traditional end-of-year nosh up. I was delighted to accompany Edward Mosse on his debut this season.

While we queued, I conversed once again with this charming Clark's regular Kate, who told me all about her tireless fundraising work for the Grand Order of the Water Rats. This august charity ('Our Story is the Story of Show Business') is based just round the corner in Gray's Inn Road.

Ben Hayes advanced into mid-table with his second show-up. It couldn't be more convenient for the history boy, whose office is within trebuchet range of Exmouth Market. The trebuchet features in 'The Top 10 Badass Ancient Weapons'; click here for more.

The accompanying items shown far left were not bound for the sling of an arbalest. The illustration is simply an aerial view of Rik Lucas's 24-point payload. That kept the siege (and his willingness to work) at bay for a few hours.

We were blessed by the appearance of Rabbi Tom Leader. No, that is not the Torah in the good man's hand, but a copy of 'Agent Zigzag' by Ben Macintyre, author more importantly of 'Operation Mincemeat'. Nothing to do with Clark's succulent offerings, but it is a real-life tale of derring-do which altered the course of World War Two. Read the book, or check the wiki here.

Len Wilcock undertook his own 'Operation Mince Mouth', which brought him up to level pegging with Dave (Sh-)Arkell at second place in the league table.

Paul Grice gamely negotiated what I believe to be his first bowl of stewed eels for club and country. He was joined at the table by gentlemen of Essex Terence Cecil and Andrew Potts, along with yours truly madly deeply.

I hear Potts is excelling in the legal industry, having graduated from photocopy and fax to the glamour of cd compilations. He's currently working on 'Now That's What I Call Case Law Volume 29'. What next your honour? 'Top Ten Criminal Trials' available on iTunes?

These people have tolerated our antics for quite some time. In the left picture is Dave the Pieman, who, with his able mate Chas, produced the deliciously crunchy, yet at the same time chewy, crusts we feasted upon.

On the right, our patient hostesses Pat and Eileen. Pat grew up in Islington, and she told me to look out for 'I grew up in Islington' the next time I was on the computer. I have, and it's a Facebook group devoted to old photos of the borough. If you fancy a trip down Golden-Memory-Lane it's well worth a butcher's; click here.

The company braved the icy conditions outside with a variety of protective muffs and the like.

After lunch we went for a pint in the Postman's Arms up the road, before tackling the icy pavements of Clerkenwell en route to Jerusalem. Well, the Jerusalem Tavern on Britton Street, that is.

And it being the hour of sunset on Friday in the Jerusalem, Tom did give the drinks a Shabbat-style blessing whilst he read upside down from 'Agent Zigzag'.

Shalom.
