GUNNER MAG and 19 REGT

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by Wittmann, Jan 7, 2008.

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. I want to know what the editor of Gunner Mag has against 19 Regt, 19 Regt has just completed a very successful tour of Afghanistan which has not been mentioned once in our Regimental magazine - I know articles have been submitted so this must be the editor’s decision not to publicise 19 Regts achievements

    Get a grip Gunner Mag you’re not delivering
     
  2. do you think they migt have missed the deadline.

    I remember seeing articles from the MLRS battery that was attached to 19 Regt RA appear in the Gunner magazine whilst they were still in theatre, so it cannot be an issue of just not liking articles from that particular unit.

    As Resurgam stated, it is probably a case of missing the deadline. Lets look at the facts, returned in October and the young officers were probably given the task of writing the articles for Gunner, POTL followed by a bit of silly season and a short December month. We will probably see the articles soon, I would not worry Wittman.

    There is a great photo of 19 Regt's brass on page 26 of the January edition . :)
     
  5. Probably a case of missing the deadline, I was much surprised when my copy of the January Gunner arrived on the 29 Dec instead of the usual 10 or 11 of Jan.

    That would have drastically shortened the deadline for copy to go into the magazine.

    Also, sad person that I am, I was looking through some back numbers last night, and there were some cracking articles about 19 Regt, one in particular about their FST training.
     
  6. Did anyone else care?
     
  7. Dear Wittmann
    I'm sorry you feel the Gunner mag is ignoring 19 Regt. We are very much looking forward to receiving several articles from 19. Due, I would presume, to the very reasons that GunnersQuadrant mentions, we have not seen any yet... Please be assured that as soon as we get them, they will go in the next available issue.
