5RIFLES Salamanca Day 2014

On Fri 15 Aug, 5RIFLES hosted their annual Salamanca Day, which was held slightly later in the calendar year than normal due to half the Battalion being deployed on Operations in Afghanistan.  

The event was open to anyone who is affiliated to 5RIFLES and with the promise of the 2014 Salamanca Day being bigger and better than previous events, the organisers did not disappoint.

With activities such as dodgems, a shooting gallery, inflatable slides, vehicle display, a children's entertainer, wrestling suits and much more there was plenty to keep everyone entertained. Entertainment was also provided by a Katie Perry & Lady Gaga tribute act throughout the day and a rock act going into the evening.

There was plenty to eat and drink throughout the day and evening, which included Fish & Chips and a Hog Roast.

The event was a great success, with good weather on their side the 5RIFLES community enjoyed a fun packed day.
