Each year, the Queen's Royal Hussars fight it out, not against a common enemy, but against each other in the annual Duke of Edinburgh competition.

This year the final - a testing stretcher race - took place on St Patrick's Day, their annual Families and Regimental Day.

The annual contest decides which is the best squadron so for these soldiers, it's an incredibly important occasion.
