The 450th Anniversary CCF Inspection

CCF Parade and VC and GC Memorial Unveiling

A Memorial Plaque to honour Rugbeians awarded the Victoria and George Crosses was unveiled in a splendid ceremony in the Temple Speech Rooms on May 10 by Maj Gen Andy Keeling CB CBE.  After lunch in OBS, guests were invited to watch the CCF Inspection on The Close by Lt Gen Tim Radford CB DSO OBE which culminated in a dramatic performance by the Red Devils dropping to earth out of a cloudless blue sky with the #globalpass2017 rugby ball.

Photos from the day can be seen below and the speeches and programme from the day are available for you to read below by clicking on the name.
