A Display by the aldershot Gymnastic Staff. 1896

This is one of the interesting displays of agility, endurance and muscular power that the visitor to the Gymnasium at Aldershot when the classes are under training, is bound to wonder at and admire.  The tableau here shown is of the same nature as those that the aldershot Gymnastic Staff present every year before the eyes of the thousands of pleased visitors to the Military Tournament at the Agricultural Hall.

The "Weathercock" - A Tableau at Aldershot.  1896.

What strong muscles and well ordered gymnastic training can accomplish we have an example of here before our eyes.  The Weathercock is undoubtedly a masterpiece of gymnastic skill, calling for, in its performance, perfect nerve, perfect balance, perfect power of endurance, and perfect bodily strength.  The principal performer here is Sergeant-Major Palmer of the Aldershot Gymnasium, who, in the opinion of those best qualified to judge, is one of the best all round athletes in the British Army.
