Just like the last day of school before summer holidays, 32 Engineer Regiment took to a big field for a day of sport at Marne Barracks in Catterick Garrison.

The troops reunited after a busy year of operations to play for the Hobart’s Cup, named after the man who was instrumental in the vehicles that allowed the D-Day landings to go ahead in the Second World War.

It is a proud tradition for those who serve in the regiment to compete and the day showed great competitive spirit by everyone involved from Football, Rugby, the tug of war and more which spread across the day.

After a busy year for everyone in the regiment, it is one of the first times they have managed to get together for a day like this.

Lance Corporal Kelly, a Physical Training Instructor (PTI) who has been organising some of the sports events for the day tells Forces Radio BFBS Catterick's Danny Parkinson he is pleased with how the day has turned out.

"Today's been good, everyone is happy, keeps morale up in the camp."

Motivational speech

It went down to the final course to decide who would hold the Hobart Cup for the next year.

With the scores level, 26 Armoured Engineer Squadron pulled away in the final event to claim the trophy and became proud winners of the cup.
