As the Heatwave continued to scorch Britain, Newcastle’s turned up in relatively large numbers to Devon Park, Newark once again on the Friday afternoon and started to set up camp ready for what turned out to be a great weekend.

The regiment had a lovely time seeing each other again all together for the first time this season and a couple of good battles coupled with good weather made for a great weekend.
