Detling, Military Odyssey 2006

(Hold your mouse over each image to find out more information about it)

Our display this year was based around an American infantry training camp, with a small assault/obstacle course, that we used in order to show members of the public just some of the routines used by the US Army. There was also map/enemy weapon awareness lessons given by Staff Sgt. Batten, and grenade training with Capt. Galbraith. Many 29ers attended this year and it really went to show that with our ever growing numbers, our displays will get better and better.
