Longmoor Inter-House Drill Competition

We held our annual Inter-House Drill Competition, with Capt Campbell and DMaj Johnson of the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards as our judges this year.

1st Battalion Welsh Guards enjoys a close relationship with Gordon’s School and express their "privilege to judge [Gordon's School's] annual drill competition".  In 2017, this task was undertaken by Capt Campbell (Quartermaster (Technical) and DMaj Johnson. 

The inspection was broken down into two parts:  the inspection and the drill itself.  The initial stage went well with the students maintaining a high standard of turnout and bearing.  The drill included marching in ranks of four, dressing, turning on the march, the halt and marching in review order.  All of this was done with musical support from our always impressive Pipes and Drums.

CSgt (DMaj) R Johnson, Support Company, 1st Battalion Welsh Guards said "It was an honour to be involved in this fantastic event and we look forward to assisting in future years and to bolstering our links with the School through other training events."

Many thanks to 1st Batallion Welsh Guards for their continued support in this drill, it's always a pleasure to have them involved with the School.
