Army reserves are holding an open evening to give people the chance to see what being in the army entails.

Anyone aged between 18-49 are invited to go along and speak to members of the 4th Battalion of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.

On the night, people will get the chance to look and hold the latest weapons and equipment used by the British Army.

Major Gary Turner said: “Reserve soldiers have the opportunity to experience excitement and adventure with new friends as well as gaining new skills and qualifications which can greatly enhance their performance.”

Visitors will also get the chance to hear from army reserves about their experiences in the field and a presentation will be put on to demonstrate many benefits that come with the role.

Army chefs will also be on hand preparing food for everyone there.

The evening is this Tuesday at 7.30pm at Sir Mathew Fell House, Reserve Centre on Parkinsons Way, South Shore.
