Thank you Chris!  (BTW...do you have any Welsh ancestry at all? "Lewis" is a very common surname in this part of the world!)

Mr & Mrs Tom E. Gunn at the event.

Raising and lowering the colours. We did this at the beginning / end of each day. It was overseen by a Flag Marshal provided by the Royal British Legion ( a former CPO) together with a bugler. The flag-bearers were cadets representing each of the services.

Some additional pics from our weekend event. Like in the US, we too have groups of bikers who support our troops. We were honoured to have some of these good people with their magnificent machines as our guests.

One of the most popular attractions was the illustrated talk on "The Battle of Britain" presented in our "Ops Room".
