Where history comes alive
Drill Parade in Front of Sixty Four Pounder Cannon
Visitors to the fort are rewarded with authentic drill parades, firing of cannons, and kids love the opportunity to participate in the activities. It's all quite interactive, and volunteers are eager to make sure that visitors make the most of their stay.
Throughout the afternoon, the energetic volunteers from the Fort Glanville Historical Society continue performing drills and demonstrating the cannons.
I cannot understate the devotion to duty of the volunteers. On the day that I visited it was more than 40 degrees in the sun, and they were seemingly tireless as they marched around in full dress uniform.
To be honest I felt heat exhausted watching them perform while I was in the shade. Aged between 16-90, these volunteers are truly Heroes of the Empire.
