A reminder that this is tomorrow.

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

Sorry Sub, I couldn't resist :) I hope the weather is kind for you all. I intend to pop along.
Will they be giving out tickets to their summer ball?
I went last year. TOP night, large amounts of classy muff whafting about too.
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!
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.

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.
Is it about HAC deploying as a unit, or just as speshul augmentees/BCR?
Read it. Its about both. The HAC deployed as a unit on TELIC 4 and as IA's on subsequent tours.

The HAC has a role. It is a dedicated STA regiment which will sit in the new Intelligence and Surveillance Brigade. This was reconfirmed recently. If it changes to a Marachi Band in another few months so be it. It will do as its told.... like every other regiment in the British Army.
