Successful Freedom Marches such as those recently organised at Leominster and Hereford by Herefordshire’s County Colonel will continue to have a part in marking our link with cities, towns and counties. But, for all sorts of reasons one must ring the changes and a return to intelligent KAPE activity may be a better way to assist recruiting while communicating our Rifles message.
