The final event of the year with the group based in the castle grounds and use of the education room. Friday saw the arrival of Sgt Hebden, Pte Cooper, Cpl Heaton, Pte Eaton and Pte Pozniak.
It was usually mild for the time of the year and a pleasant time was had in some of the water holes of the town.
Saturday morning and still mild when Pte Roberts, ATS Mellor, Pte Etherington, Pte Sprague and Cpl Lycett turned up with ATS Dennis in support. The training scenario involved not one but two snipers with Pte Cooper's Oscar deserving casualty performance stealing the show!
Saturday evening and those still around stepped out in various outfits conversing with familiar faces and friendly locals.
Sunday and the temperature still in the high teens with the addition of Pte Shellcock, the group went through the same routine of welcoming visitors and reenacting and a new addition, the Key Parade for Pickering Castle. Nice to see the same young faces who make a point of visiting us every year. We must make a good impression. It was a really enjoyable and successful event that concludes the 2017 season.
