Doubt it. There is not the experience now, sadly. Plus in this day of penny pinching they wouldn't release people to have time off for the training. Such a shame I loved it and ran for Pompey, cracking experience.

Agree, we'll never see it back, the manpower it took was colossal and there isn't the leeway to make that happen any longer not when we're bearing down on numbers and gapping posts all over the place.

I suspect the school mentioned above is the college at the southern end of Eastern Road in Portsmouth.

And have you seen the prices for the new event at Earls Court - ridiculous

Do you honestly think 180 men forming up three commands is "colossal"?! I would like to know howmany people joined the mob down to field gun. There are more colossal wastes of space sat in ivory towers such as fleet and Northwood than there ever was on the track.

When there's now an RN boxing squad complete with a draft chit (sorry, Assignment Order), there's no reason not to release 180 odd personnel for it.

Agree that I wonder where the manpower would come from, though why not the boxing squad get released for it? Enough of them loaf around at Nelson. ;)
