Tug a Tank
Members of Sunderland WFC went along to the local Army Camp at Whitburn, to take part in a "Tug A Tank trial" to publicise a competition at The Sunderland Airshow, Seaburn on the 26th/27th of July.
It was hard work, but the presence of the soldiers to oversee proceedings made light of the effort required.
Team entries of 10 men or 15 ladies are invited to take up the challenge to pull a SCIMITAR light tank as far as they can over a fixed time period (approximately 3 minutes). The team that covers the furthest distance in the allotted time will win the Yeomanry Trophy.
Further details of the event can be obtained from Alan Dobson on 078 121 58439.
