Default 'Gymkhana' in Hobart (Tazmania)

Hello Chaps,

Well not much insignia in this one just a couple of Red Cross armbands but it was such a fun photo I thought it worth sharing.

It appears that this was Belgium Day at the gymkhana in Hobart, which I assume is the one in Tazmania.

Great fun image and a rare shot of a motor cycle stretcher combination. Poor fellow lying down may have had too libation from the beer tent..!

Cheerio,

Roy

That's OK Roy, we've got a Tazmazia down here too so you weren't far out.

Thanks mate,

I often get things wrong on an empty stomach, but just back from a fat curry and about to poor myself a large Scotch. Not sure if the latter will make things bettor or worse..

Cheerio,

Roy
