There was a really good turn out from the East Yorks for their fourth year at Rufford. There appeared to be more displays than last year but still the emphasis was on the British. As usual we were required to form the Guard of Honour for Churchill and Montgomery, both of whom gave excellent stirring speeches. Also in attendance was the local Mayor who was there to officially open the event. This can only bode well for the continuation of this excellent show.
Mr Cooper had put together a training exercise that managed to cleverly incorporated all the various participating groups, and gave the audience a clear picture on how the different arms of the British Army worked together.
The ladies spent both days busily mending kit. I have to say we are always most grateful to have instant kit repair on tap. The ladies had also prepared for the event buy baking an excellent selection of cakes. We would like to thank the Ladies for taking on the job of manning the large display while the men were otherwise occupied.
All in all an excellent and enjoyable weekend.
