David Mitchell, history teacher and organiser, said: "It was an excellent exhibition with every branch of the Army represented.
"It was also a fun day with Meridian winning the air-rifle shooting activity."
Event organiser Major Mick Bohanan said: "It is a great opportunity to give youngsters a taste of Army life.
"They had the opportunity to talk to soldiers and hear first-hand what life in the Army is really like."
About 15,000 students from 250 schools across the south-east and the Midlands attended the exhibition.
