SALUTE MILITARY SHOW
One of Ireland’s finest Military shows have again booked us for the display on Saturday and Sunday and again a large battle on Sunday for the public at 2.30pm. We are delighted to be part of this event as it just gets bigger and bigger each year. We will display a large amount of vehicles and equipment at this show too. We are delighted to support Sean Curtis and his group in this venture as he has supported Duncannon each year since its first show.
That is all we are doing in public shows this year. With the amount of vehicles and artillery and men in the group, this is a very heavy commitment for the group for 2009.
We have two films to do also in March and April, and in April we look forward to working on the second part of the German film, The LAST WITNESS, to be completed here in Ireland, with our friends from Die Gruppe, SGNord, Frontline and Germany, it’s a big cast and will have over 150 extras and vehicles involved.
OUR TRAINING WEEKEND
This is also in early March and we have some very good qualified men coming from Germany for instruction. So far we have 30 attending and welcome our friends from the other groups named above if they wish to take part. Those of you who have in the past know what a great weekend it is and the high standard involved. The pics of times past tell their own story.
OUR ANNUAL TRIP TO NORMANDY
In June, after Duncannon, this is also in the organizing stages and will be a cracker for the 65th anniversary.
