Royal Naval and Military Tournament 1909

The Londons had a chance to show off their prowess before the paying public in May 1909 at The Royal Naval and Military Tournament.

The show ran from the 13th May to the 29th, with two performances per day.

The publicity (from the Illustrated London News of 15 May 1909) does not say if the Battalion  featured in all performances, but if it did it must have been useful training for the future.

I would love to know if my Grandfather, Stan Ridout of C Company took part, but so far I haven’t found the vital piece of information I need!
