1950/60s RA


War Hero
Hopefully there's someone who can help with some factoids:

1. Was the field regt organisation of 2 btys 25-pdr and one bty 5.5-inch adopted in the 1950s (what year?) or was it adopted with the change to btys of 6 guns or was it adopted 1960/1 when national servicemen started to disappear?

2. Was this organisation adopted by the TA?

3. Pre-1967 and the change to TAVR, did the TA para arty have 105mm Pack How?

And now for another:

Anybody know the whereabouts of accessible information on the 85-mm Garrington Gun developed as a 25-pdr replacement in the early 1950s? I know there is (or was) one of the prototype guns at Shrivenham.
