See former England rugby captain Mike Tindall cut the ribbon at the opening of the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum’s latest exhibition, said to tell the story of life for local troops in Afghanistan.

Whether you’re an avid rugby fan or military buff, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to see Mike Tindall officially open the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum’s latest exhibition on Tuesday 16 April 2013.

The former England captain and Gloucester Rugby outside centre is set to cut the ribbon of the specialist museum’s latest Modern Army exhibition, which is said to tell the tale of the local Rifles regiment’s many tours of Afghanistan.

Opening at 3pm, the exhibition will offer visitors an insight into what is involved in touring, the weapons used, uniforms worn and what they have to carry.

Organisers added that the exciting, hands-on display will also give museum-goers the chance to try on a fully laden Bergen rucksack – weighing up to a whopping 27 kg – as well as body armour and revolutionary blast pants; a novel but life-saving piece of kit for troops in Afghanistan.
