    There's a Battery called the Battleaxe Company. I wonder if it was named after an old CO's mother in law.
    You cannot fight a war with one hand tied behind your back.

    The Royal Artillery are rightly proud of being on the Right of the Line.
    But think about this: Who is it that guards the other flank?
    Thats it, you got it. The brave boys of the REME, RCT, RE, RAOC etc.
    Thats why we are called 'The Left Overs'
    RCT & bar (fully licensed)

    I just think that it is good that O'Nion can remember his first action after all these years, nice that they let you keep the gun too
    Spanners do it with their tools.

    How would I know what to do with a gun? All I know is someone puts a shell in one end, someone pushes a button, it goes bang and goes out the other end rather fast... I would've been several hundred yards to the rear in my dry warm command post laughing at the gun bunnies with a gin and tonic in my hand wondering what the fuss is all about practicing my colloquial German language just in case the hun should appear.

    Hong Kong with the 55's everytime they fired one of those things I expected a bloke in a silver suit and crash hat to come shooting out 93 Bty had the biggest weapons and the highest incidence of industrial deafness.
