Pozieres Dinner - Tin Can Bay
A most successful activity held by the Battalion at the Tin Can Bay Field Firing Range on Sat 16 Jul 2016 - a wet night but a thoroughly enjoyable one.
The sound of live firing punctuated the evening - drizzling rain only added to the ambience and a series of playlets transported us to the battlefields of France. An excellent effort by all involved.
