Royal Tournament Revival


One of the early acts of rampant vandalism against our national heritage and institutions, perpetrated by Tony Blair and his cronies, was binning the Royal Tournament.

Whispers reach me suggesting it might be back on, albeit in reduced form which is not a surprise given the hatchet that's been taken to all the services whilst ramping up their commitments over the last eleven years.

Still, it'll be good to have it back in any form. Goodness knows we'll need something to cheer us along in the dark and grim days that lie ahead.

For aficionados, here once again is the Last Run of the Field Gun competition.
