Freedom of Ladysmith

19 Riflemen from 2 RIFLES are currently undertaking a two week trip to South Africa to accept the Freedom of Ladysmith on behalf of the Regiment.

The group has spent a week in Durban conducting adventurous pursuits such as surfing and gorge jumping and will head up to Ladysmith tomorrow to undertake a varied programme of official parades, battlefield studies and commemorative services.

Captain Simon Swindells and Rifleman James Kelly also flew to Cape Town for a night to visit the Cape Town Rifles (Duke's) and to promote Regimental alliances throughout South Africa.
