Rufford Abbey 26th - 27th September.

Rufford Abbey 26th - 27th September.

As always our annual trip to Rufford Abbey was a most enjoyable event. Folks started to arrive on Friday afternoon and we got the tentage set up in the warm afternoon sun. By 7pm it had become a dark and cold September night so we retreated to the pub for a team beer. On the Saturday morning L/CPL cooper set up his impressive N.A.A.F.I. display. Pte. Clewlow put on an excellent display of ATS kit and equipment and Pte. Pozniak set up the wireless tent . Later in the morning we provided the guard for the parade with Field Marshal Montgomery and Prime Minister Churchill. After the parade we were treated to corned beef and ham sandwiches for lunch, all made by the ATS girls.  After lunch L/CPL Heaton took the lads for a bit of rifle drill up on the circle. This is always a popular activity as some one always puts a foot wrong and get a laugh. In the afternoon we put on a training scenario in the main arena. This was the usual section attack on a fixed position. This involved the Pack 40 made  by PTE Etherington and a real Stuart tank. This went down very well.

We would also like to welcome new member Rob, he fitted in well and also had a go at the rifle drill with L/CPL Heaton and picked this up very quickly.
