TA celebrations in Douglas

Around 200 past and present soldiers of the Territorial Army have commemorated the organisation's centenary.

A Manx government funded event for members was held at the Legion Club in Douglas to mark the occasion.

Rushen MHK Quintin Gill, a former TA himself, said it was important to recognise the Territorial Army's place in the Island's history (play attached audio file):
