DAREDEVIL STUNTS AT THE LIVERPOOL MILITARY SHOW
Photographs thanks to the British
families from across the North West will enjoy a fun and informative
day at Walton Hall Park from Saturday 27th to Monday 29th May as
soldiers from across the country gather at the Liverpool Military
Show to demonstrate their skills.
The show, organised by the Liverpool Armed Forces Careers Office, is
a showcase of the jobs and expertise that can be gained from a
career with the Army.
This year will prove a real eye-opener for families, with a huge
range of interactive activities and lots of local soldiers on hand
to talk about Army life, some of whom have just returned from Iraq
and Afghanistan. Highlights will include a daredevil performance
from the Royal Signals White Helmets Motorcycle display team and a
stunning freefall parachute display from the Parachute Regiment's
Among the many hands-on activities available for youngsters will be
paintball ranges, motorcycle rides, face painting and casualty
simulation with the Army Medical Core.
Organiser Major Bob Dobson says:- "The Liverpool Military Show
is now in its 5th year but it just gets better and better. With
nearly 30 displays and dedicated villages packed with displays and
activities I'm sure that the event will be one that the Liverpool
community are very proud.
As one of the UK's biggest employers we feel it's essential that
families have the opportunity to find out from the horse's mouth
what Army life is all about. People are unaware of the range of
different jobs available within the Army, its not all about combat,
we have nine different career groups ranging from engineers to
medics. We are not just fighters but life savers too and events like
this give us a chance to bring the various career groups to life."
The part-time forces of the North West region's Territorial Army
will also be attending the show hosting various displays and
The Liverpool Military Show will be held at Walton Hall Park from 27
May 06 to 29 May 2006, from 11am to 4pm. A small entry fee will be
charged in support of service charities, for more information please
