Tynwald Day

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Bollock-chops, Nov 1, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The IOM guard of honour thing, I can find no history of who did it and when, anyone have linkys?

  3. I am fairly sure I stayed in Jurby? I thought such an event would be well documented.

    We (6/7 Queens) did it in around '89 or so - can't remember for sure, but I probably have it in the old Regt Journals if required. And we stayed at Jurby, that's for sure.

    Cracking place, IoM, but the compulsory early morning sea dips were a bit hard core for me :)
     
  5. Being a Manxman, I have to say that the smart looking soldiers parading on Tynwald Day were one of the main attractions to me when I decided to join up. Little did I know.........................................................................!!!!!
     
  6. From PRTs link, I searched and found this vid page, by my reckoning, it must be me in 2s with others in the 1986 video with Prince Edward, I dont remember him?
