Thu 15 Apr 2021: A statement from the Director Ten Tors, Colonel Neville Holmes MBE

“His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh honoured Ten Tors by becoming its Patron in January 1963. For 58 years, he has been a tremendous supporter of the annual youth Challenges held on Dartmoor. Through the Event each May, organised by the Army, more than a quarter of a million young people from all walks of life, who trained for and challenged themselves, have been taught to respect and enjoy the countryside becoming ambassadors for the responsible use of Dartmoor and other wild areas. We express our sincerest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family, and will remember with gratitude The Duke’s outstanding commitment to Ten Tors.”
