I have this week been contacted by David Gordon, son of the late S/Sgt David Gordon who sadly passed away on 24/06/12.
S/Sgt David Gordon Joined the Mounted Troop in 1958 after completion of his training and served with S/Sgt Ernie Scattergood and Sgt Bill Griffiths, as they were at that time.
During his service with the Troop his two main horses were 'Dennis' and 'Sam'. He served on the display team and competed in many competitions winning many trophies. Notably he was placed first on five occasions at the Royal Tournament.
He also competed in Show Jumping, Cross Country, Tent Pegging, Sword, Lance and Revolver.
Hi son David has many pictures etc which he has kindly promised to let me have copies of, which I will then place into David's own album.
David left the Troop in 1974 on his promotion to S/sgt.
