    Dear All,

    I just wanted to say how privilaged I was to be involved in the TA 100 activites in Southampton.

    I was also present at the Mayor Making ceremony to watch the SUOTC Guard of Honour and the TA being given the Freedom of the City.

    The parade and static displays in the Guildhall were excellent and the firing of the three rounds was timed to perfection.

    Well done to all involved.

    Also have loads of pictures if you want them, taking part in that parade is something that will stay with me for a while, doubt ill have the chance to do anything similar anytime soon!
    Was an excellent day and everyone i have spoken to were very impressed, not quite guards standard but how many people are!?!

    Any chance i could get those video clips as well? would be good to watch it again. Cheers.

    Thanks for the mention - It was a good day, all went off fine, nobody flaked on the parade, shame the officer leading the parade had all the drill presence of a hamster, and wanted us to march off with rifles at the shoulder :D

    I've got some pics too, will post them when I work out how to

    Went really well!

    Everyone involved really enjoyed it, and the public seemed to appreciate it.
