The Military Tech Show returns with S2 on Forces TV

The Military Tech Show returns with S2 on Forces TV. Wednesday's @ 7:30pm

In a brand new series of The Military Tech Show, we explore the latest and most exciting developments in defence and security technology.  During the next six episodes highlights include rare access to the German Aerospace Centre outside Munich where scientists are using radar for detecting land mines; an exclusive behind the scenes look at the work of NATO’s Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation in La Spezia, Italy, where researchers are helping to keep the world’s shipping lanes safe for global trade; we’re on board the RAF’s ground-breaking, multi-role aircraft as it refuels a squadron of  Typhoon fighter jets; the Italian textile manufacturer who’s kitting out British special forces using a revolutionary new form of wool; and we report on the key exercise in Scotland for testing unmanned water, surface and airborne vehicles.



The Beale Beastie

A brand new Sprint distance triathlon set in the stunning Beale Park, Berkshire.
The Beale Beastie is a 400m open water lake swim in the cool, clear waters of Beale Park Lake.  You’ll run through parkland, along the banks of the River Thames and into the dappled light of the woods – truly mixed terrain.  The ride is a challenging 20km bike ride through the glorious Berkshire Downs – taking on one or two notorious local hills (it is a Beastie after all).
Suitable for novices and for experienced competitors.

Families Activity Breaks (FAB)

What is FAB?
Families’ Activity Breaks (FAB) is a non-public funded, tri Service charitable initiative, providing fun and challenging activity camps around the UK for bereaved Military families.
Families’ Activity Breaks
If your child is aged up to 19 years old and has suffered the loss of a loved one who was serving in the Armed Forces, then you may be eligible for a FAB camp. The holidays offer an adventure for all the family and a welcome break to meet and socialise with others who have experienced a similar loss. A loved one can mean a parent, a step parent, or a child’s legal guardian, carer or sibling.

Full details of 2017 FAB dates are at www.fabcamps.org.uk
