1 Lanc's Families Day at Somme Barracks (return to Diary Page) .(return to Contents Page)

The call came from John Stafford an ex-regular colleague of ours with close links to 1 Lanc's stationed at Somme Barracks, Catterick. The request was for support for a Families day being organised as part of the medal awards parade following the regiments return from Afghanistan. We enlisted as many volunteers as possible for a mid-week event, the response was great, nine vehicles in total turned out and we had a really good day. The medal parade went like clockwork (as you would expect) and we were appreciated for our turnout and support.
