The strong links lasting 65 years between Ripon and the Corps of Royal Engineers have been celebrated during the city’s annual Engineers Weekend.

On Saturday, members of 21 Engineer Regiment, based at Claro Barracks, were on the market square manning static displays as well as a demonstration of the ABLE bridge-launching vehicle.

There was also a dive tank, a combat engineer stand and a construction/artisan trade stand.
