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. Didn't get much of a look, but sure I saw a QF 25 pounder on the back of a foden on the m25 today. Thought that must be a pretty rare sight?

    May have been mistaken and might have been an L5? Sorry, I'm not really an artillery spotter...

    Anyone have any idea (or allowed to say) what it was doing out there?

    P.S - It illicited a slightly better reaction than when we'd seen a Chally 2 earlier in the journey - my wife said it was an "ugly colour"... *sigh*

    If you go to the Old 'n Bold Forum you might get the Gunners to man it!
     
  6. Each regiment still has a brace of 25 pdrs for ceremonial affairs, medals parades and the like. It could have been one of any number of colours that are kept spick and span for such events.
