The Club’s 2017 Foreign Field Trip took place from Sunday, 01 October to Thursday, 05 October visiting Lisbon, Portugal.
The Group was accorded a formal reception by the Combined Arms School on on arrival in Mafra. A wide-ranging brief on the School’s impressive outputs provided the Group with a comprehensive understanding of the extensive activities of the School – “Se Mostrarão Nis Armas Singulares”.
The brief was followed by an impressive display of artillery equipment. Thereafter, the Group experienced Mafra’s impressive architectural and religious heritage by visiting Mafra’s National Palace, Convent and Basilica. The Artillery Group remains grateful to the School for hosting the visit to the Combined Arms School, for a most enjoyable lunch in the Archers Room and for facilitating the exchange of gifts in the Elliptic Hall.
