  2. No need to shout, even if you are an ex-gunner and a long way away!

    16 (Lincoln) Coy was disbanded around 1995. About 18 months before its disbandment it was moved from Lincoln to Nottingham. In its last couple of years it provided the recce platoon and sniper platoon to 4 PARA.

    IIRC it is now a platoon of 12 Coy 4PARA. Whether or not there is detachment in Nottingham or Lincoln any more you would be best advised to contact the Bn directly (details on the web somewhere).

    Cheerio and sorry to be so brief,
