    For anyone interested, the HAC will also be performing a ceremonial gun salute, the first ever fired at Armoury House.

    Be fair, they will be doing their "tent pegging" display again. Surely putting up tentage is a role? The R SIGNALS and RAMC junior ranks have been excelling in it for years!
  9. I genuinely have little clue about tentage of any size, why do I need a Tent when I have a BFA that has light and heating?

    Speak to your colleagues in other areas of the RAMC. Their knowledge of tents, military, field hospitals for the use of unbelievable.

  11. I intend to dodge Med Regt's and Field Hospitals until I'm too old for all this malarky and instead find myself filling my time with my Meth addiction and hookers.
  12. I believe you've just contradicted yourself there mate, fd Hosps are full of all the above.
