This year for the Military Odyssey show in Detling near Maidstone, we joined up again with the guys from A Company and their house display. We were there from Thursday to Monday, and the house was put up on Friday by Dave Batten, Simon Lewis and Tom Gow from C Company and from A Company Dave Butler, Simon Howland, Glenn Warren and Les (you'll have to let me know your surname!) and finally Les Hearn. Danny Butler, the CO of A Company, arrived on Friday evening with Mike Carr and the rest of the group for the weekend.
