AN Army search was under way last night after a soldier lost his gun — an SA80 assault rifle.
The Sergeant Major had been using the weapon, which fires 700 rounds a minute, during an exercise in the Brecon Beacons.

Military chiefs suspended the exercise and ordered all 900 troops to search for the 5.56mm automatic rifle which was loaded with 20 rounds of blanks.

But despite a 12-hour hillside hunt the rifle has still not been found.

The missing gun belonged to an Artificer Sergeant Major in charge of a 90-strong group of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.

They were taking part in an exercise with the 14th Signals Regiment based at Sennybridge, Powys, mid-Wales.

An insider said: “The ASM handed the rifle to one of his juniors at a temporary command post while he went off to do some admin.

“When he got back the command post had moved and he couldn’t find his weapon.”

The Special Investigation Branch of the Royal Military Police have now been called in. Civilian cops from the surrounding area of Dyfed Powys have also been alerted.

A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Defence said: “We take all losses of weapons very seriously.”


How much trouble??

Reminds me of when QRIH took on Challenger in late Nov 86. Someone left an SMG on the side of the tank and they drove out onto the training area. Whenb it was reported missing the whole squadron had to spend 3 nights outside with temps at -12 and no crew heaters cost they kept blowing bulbs. The tank in question was the 2nd one out and 10 others followed plus fitter section. Never was found.

Im sorry but this bloke is a buffoon, since when did you disappear to do admin and not take your weapon. What sort of admin was he doing anyway , possibly loking for a Sainsburies perhaps and when did you ever leave your weapon with a JNCO.This WO needs to get on ops pronto and then hell appreciate that your weapon never ever leaves your side.

If its the same bloke, I do believe he is on the ASB but may be removed. However, another individual who dropped a major clanger on OP TELIC 1 on a biblical scale (and we shall keep it at that) has still gone forward to the ASB, so there perhaps is hope for this clown.
