100 Regiment RA (V)

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Lighthorseman, Jun 28, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Might sound like a silly question but I'd like to know if any of the TA Light Gun regiments (like 100 Regt) actually have L119s and whether they get the opportunity to fire their guns on weekend FTXs.
     
  2. Funnily enough, we do! And we are, on the weekend of the 11th of July.

    Upon October's frosty month, we have two weeks where dawn's sweet melancholy will be rent asunder with the sound of guns. Lots of guns.
     
  3. Cheers

    Did a weekend with a gun regiment a number of years ago and it was a great experience being a Gun Number and seeing how you guys work.

    Do you think your regiment would be interested in some TA RAC recce boys coming along on a weekend to learn more or watch the FO at work?
     
  4. Hey, we could make this a big "you show me yours and I'll show you mine" event ! Theoretically, there is nothing to stop us asking for AH, CH or at least Lx / Gz for such a weekend in the Autumn.

    Recce, occupy and defend a FOB.

    Perform fire missions iso FF.

    Set up a FARP, re-fuel & re-arm a/c.

    Peform Joint Fires.

    Home for tea and medals....

  6. My brain is already ticking over, having just run a FOB / FARP'ing Ex last weekend.
     
  7. Let me see
    100 Yeomanry with light gun!
    The late great 202(SNY) Bty alongside!
    An all arms EX!
    Could this be a time warp back to the 1990's
     
  8. My plan is to conduct the ex in Spring 08 (April-Jun) as TY08/09 is probably already set in stone. Would this fit in with what 100 Regt and 6 Regt do FOE wise??
     
  9. I expect we can accommodate this.

    Any thoughts on a likely training area ?
     
  10. Gentlemen,

    Get in touch with fas_et_gloria. He can see if any of this can become reality.
     
  11. Being Picky as an ex Gunner but its L118,

    Spams use M119 which is their version of our design and is less capable
     
  12. Apologies PP :)

    FP, I was initially thinking STANTA.

    FS, I'll drop fas_et_gloria a line and see what he thinks.

    Discussing the initial idea with my unit this weekend.
     
  13. Cool!

    P_P, oops, sorry! Should have spotted that!
     
  14. No problemo 103 was my old mob, but I've forgotten quite a lot already myself. :roll:
