Lifted from the official page at HAC Polo The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) is proud to host The IG Index HAC 105 Polo Invitational, a three match exhibition polo event in aid of the Regimental Charity – The HAC Benevolent Fund. The event will be held on Saturday 8th September 2012 at Ham Polo Club, Richmond, London. In 2011 the event drew a crowd of 900+ spectators and raised much needed funds for the HAC Benevolent Fund. And to top it off the HAC – “The oldest regiment in the British Army” – celebrates its 475th anniversary from August 2012. We’re pleased to announce that the regiment has adopted the day as one of its flagship community engagement events and as such its a great opportunity to see some of the fantastic aspects of the HAC. So ensure you put Saturday 8th September 2012 in your diaries. This year will see teams play for the honour of a number of beautiful trophies (kindly provided by Mappin & Webb) and the main match sees The Hackett Army Team compete for the “105″ (A 105mm brass cartridge used to fire an artillery round from a standard British Army field gun). The day will also feature matches between the HAC and the RAF and Army Reserve teams. Apart from the frenetic and exciting polo there will also be a display by the HAC Pikemen & Musketeers, a tent pegging display by the HAC Light Cavalry, Music by the HAC Band and Corps of Drums, HAC Light Guns, the Horsebox Gallery and food and drink stands.
