WE PARADE WITH SOME PROUD FRENCH EX-SERVICEMEN

2006 found THE RIFLES on the Somme battlefields with our parent organisation the Great War Society.  For six days we traveled around the sites of the action and took part in numerous commemoration activities.  It was a very tiring and moving week, and one we will never forget.
