The Maiwand Jezails – a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars – has been founded 26th June 1963.
Our Scion is unique in that we have no officers (only the Commandant), no dues, minutes, treasurer’s report, newsletter, quizzes are banned, no ballot or committees and male membership. We have cigars and cognac at the table, printed programs, and every table is full service with flowers. A table is set for Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson. There is never a head table. Always displayed are the two incon of the group; a two hundred year old jezail rifle and the painting “Saving the Guns at the Battle of Maiwand”. Host teams plan several months for a dinner. We are uncommonly “irregular” and meet at the whim of the Commandant from one to three times a year.
We welcome those who express a sincere interest in things Sherlockian. Dilettantes are shunned.
