Guests enjoyed browsing archive material relating to the Service over its 70 year history, and were then treated to a display of current RTC techniques by the Lossiemouth retained crew, as well as a practice drill by Gordonstoun and a drive past by the Fire Heritage Society in their beautifully restored 1915 appliance.
