The 2015 Ambuscade Association Reunion was held at our adopted town Crewe in Cheshire on 29-30th May. After an informal evening in the Royal Pub on Friday, we nursed our sore heads whilst our chairman Mark recounted his incredible feat of rowing the Atlantic Ocean. Afterwards we took part in a new Ambuscade challenge in support of the Sea Horse charity, by racing Pedalos on a local boating lake. In the evening we were very well hosted by TS Ambuscade in company of the Town mayor Councilor Dennis Straine-Francis
