ABOUT 30 people accepted a public invitation to attend an Army Reserves open day this week, with six or seven of them expressing an interest in signing up.

Warrant Officer (second class) Ian Mason said the event included a display of weapons and a mock section attack, but he thought the big attraction for those who attended was the chance to speak with reservists about their experiences.

A bigger open day, including a vehicle display, will be held later in the year at the Docker Street depot.
