Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Petardier, Apr 10, 2007.

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. 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.
