To see out the year we gathered in Monmouth as a Regiment for the Xmas weekend. With troops from all our sub units from Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham, Swansea to Bristol and all points in-between (not forgetting Jersey!) it’s time to let our hair down a little.
Saturday began with a look back over the year, some updates and then a look forward to the next. Then it was given over to an inter-unit competition with potted sports such as football and dodgeball as well as a short multi stage team ‘Strong Man’ (or Woman) event devised by ‘Q Muscles’ (head honcho of the Physical Training Instructors). This was generally felt to be quite arduous but entertaining!
Evening festivities then began with Christmas dinner for the troops served to them by the officers and continuing into the night (with plenty of liquid refreshment for re-hydration).
Sunday then was the Commanding Officers Fun Run to help clear the heads of those who might need it, prize-giving and clean-up. And that wraps it up for 2015!
