On Wednesday 15 May members of British Forces, Gibraltar took part in Commander of British Forces (CBF) Cup.

There were four teams all hoping to be the first to get their name engraved on the brand new cup: Royal Gibraltar Regiment, Army Minor Units (AMU), Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

Sports included Golf, 5-a-side football, volleyball, tug-of-war and a Superstar relay challenge.

I think the biggest surprise of the day was the AMU absolutely smashing the tug-of-war...  that was impressive
