Royal Tournament gun race returns for charity

For more than a century the Royal Tournament was a chance for the British military to show off its talents away from the battlefield.

The shows featured music, displays of various martial skills, and of course the famous field gun race.

The tournament was scrapped in 1999, but it is now being revived by ABF, The Soldiers' Charity, to raise money for injured soldiers and their families.

Wellington College will field two competing teams in the gun race in the 2010 British Military Tournament.

Jack and Ben Harcourt of the Wellington Field Gun crew showed Richard Westcott how they train for the big event.
