IT was a real-life Army Game.

More than 400 military and civilian staff took part in an It's a Knockout competition at Bassingbourn Barracks.

Organiser Warrant Officer John Pedley said: "It's been a lot of hard work getting it all together.

"When you see everyone getting to know each other better and having a good laugh at the same time it makes it all seem worthwhile," he said.

The events were based on the 1960s and 1970s TV game show - and included a lot of water as well as considerable gamesmanship.

And while the adults battled it out in the arena there were events for children such as face-painting, a penalty shoot-out competition and activity on the paintball range.

Major Graham Gibson, who took part in the event, said: "Everyone had a thoroughly good laugh.
