I personally know someone very well who has been on the RAF Field Gun Team ( marrying one of my daughters )
When I first heard he was at a Competition for this one weekend I had a WTF moment .... RN does Field Gun and RHA/RA does Field Gun, both with historical roots.
But RAF ?
From the point of view of the actual participants - good on them. Strength, fitness, teamwork etc and what's a missing digit or two amongst mates.
But who in the elevated Realms of the RAF thought that it was appropriate for his Service to get involved - and why ?
When personnel and Sqns are being cut - this does seem a misuse of manpower.
As@Magic_Mushroom used to point out regularly, the British Army has so much manpower tied up in bands that if you reallocated the JPANs then you could solve the RN's seagoing deficiencies at one stroke.
