You agree that it’s not answerable, but you still want to pursue an answer.
Not forgetting the subject of this thread
"A senior coroner has already heard RTR soldiers giving evidence stating the charge-bags, which propel shells out the barrel, were habitually stored outside special protective containers, called charge bins, in the turret. "
"Lt Col Ridgway said the practice “had become normalised in a way I had not appreciated”.
He said: “I have to admit I sort of felt physically sick when I heard people were stowing them out of the bins.
“If for one moment I suspected they were storing them incorrectly, I would have been furious.”
No licence whatsoever for the practice. Lt Col Ridgeway sound a perfectly decent man not the kind of cowboy who would suggest breaking the quite clear and necessary rules.
He is an officer in a CR2 Regiment who understands these things not some amateur from the Light Cav.
