Time to bring a little dignity to the battlefield, methinks. Can any other Regiment/Corps boast that their weapons are their Colours? Wink Wink

Nope...


The Colours of the Royal Regiment of Artillery are its weapons, which are its guns, and its rockets and missiles (including man-portable weapons) when these are mounted on or in a launcher. When on parade on ceremonial occasions, these weapons are accorded the same compliments as the Standards, Guidons and Colours of the Household Cavalry, Royal Armoured Corps and Infantry. It is impracticable in modern times to consider the weapons of the Royal Artillery as Colours on non-ceremonial occasions but they are always treated with dignity and respect.
The guns became the Colours of the Regiment through the practice in its early history of carrying the equivalent of today's Queen's Colour on the largest piece in an artillery train, which was designated the 'Flag Gun'. The Flag Gun was used until the end of the 18th century and after this period the guns themselves came to be regarded as the Colours of the Artillery.

Gentlemen

Please, kindly remember the role of the British Cavalry is to bring tone to what otherwise would be a vulgar brawl.

Speaking of cavalry . . .

Wandering around a churchyard in deepest Cheshire last weekend, I came across the grave of a bloke who died in 1876 aged 82.

He was in the 16th Lancers and fought in the Battle of Waterloo.

I love these links with history !

Quote - Brum - 'It couldn't happen'

Well old chap, when the next round of cut backs happen, we'll see. The Army then will only be a brigade strength I reckon and as the aeroplane/baloon came about to act as spotters for the guns, there's a hint in there somewhere methinks. RA/AAC !!!

Hi Shelldrake/Brum,

here's a picture showing Afghan National Army instructors firing artillery from the 122 milimeter howitzer D-30. Seemingly, they were trained by the US element of NATO.

They would need to submit their CV to The Master Gunner, St James' Palace and if their lineage could be traced back at least 300 years, they might well secure an interview. Suspect

Could be a rammer. He could be getting carried away with the excitement of the moment ! (Trust you to pick up on that !).

That towing eye, under the muzzle brake. Shouldn't that be removed during firing ? scratch

OMG! How spooky, the first post I come accross and there's a pic of people I know! This is QRIH in Munster sometime mid 80s. These guys are in C Sqn. The one facing the camera on the left is Ken Davidson, with Dave Sparks behind him. The two lovely ladies were our NAAFI girls, Kathy Vick is the one on the left, now married to one of the QRH Officers.

Small world.

But we - R Signals were still very much in evidence in camp, looking after the Bde HQ as well as our own lot. 6 Inf Bde HQ & Signals Sqn. The QOH had just left when I arrived in 1962. Think it was 4/7th Dragoon Guards who took over.

Very Happy Hi Brum, the Irish Hussars were in Barker Bks Paderborn until about 79 when they moved to Tidworth, then to Munster in 82. Funnily enough they have been in the Paderborn neck of the woods since 98 now, in Athlone Bks Sennelager (as QRH). 3 yearsly Arms plotting is a thing of the past.
