The Western Desert Recce Group based in Blantyre Industrial Estate, were delighted to welcome the 3rd Blantyre Scouts last night at their HQ building.
The young visitors enjoyed talks and demonstrations about the group’s various military vehicles, the uniforms and clothing and some of the wartime weapons, including a gas firing Vickers K demo machine gun! Everybody took great interest and left satisfied with the tour.
Gary Wallace told us, “The WDRG was well received and the Scouts left with a good idea about the LRDG and early SAS etc. Many thanks to all our guys for their great effort tonight, Iain, Mitch, Derek, Neil, Pete and Don well done Chaps.”
