Wartime craft gets soldiers to Scouts' island
Nottingham Army Reserves have used a D-Day landing craft to transport their equipment across a river to upgrade a Scout group's island base.
The Regular and Reserve soldiers of the East Midlands-based 73 Engineer Regiment have been putting their military expertise into practice to build a new boat house and upgrade toilet facilities on Barton Island in the River Trent, home to the 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts since the 1960s.
