buggsubique has posted last night’s show at the War Memorial to YouTube for our enjoyment and edification:

The Royal Military College Band played the 1812 Overture, 105mm towed howitzers fired, and the display concluded with fireworks. It rained the whole time.

UPDATE: GP has sent in a selection of pictures from the open day:
