Not sure who are the bigger idiots, the ones with the ordnance, or the mong with the phone who's first thought was, 'lets take a picture to post on facebook', rather than.'Hello, Police, yes, they're walking off the range with shells'
No joke or innuendo intended, I assure you. I hate the thieving ******* as much as it is possible to hate a bunch of cheating mongs who live like parasites off the rest of us.
A couple of years ago they used a digger on the back of a truck to haul 40m of telephone cable out of the ground near our village, and in doing so, destroyed another 900m. This cut off two large villages and five hamlets for ten days - total pissed-off population of around 3500 people. They are a blight on the country and I wish them all a dose of the raging shits combined with explosive bouts of sneezing.
BovingTon was never a tank range, what the piece is on about is Lulworth, some 8 miles away. BovingDon is in Hertfordshire
As far as I know all natures of ammunition were used. Whilst at JLR RAC I was dibbed to scurry around at the BAEE 86 (British Army Equipment Exhibition) hosted by Bovington that year. I distinctly recall HESH, APFSDS being fired along with some CAS and Arty natures.
It was unlikely that a trainee would fire HESH in basic, I know I never did in my trg at Warcop, although we did fire SH PRAC (Squash Head Practice) & DST (Discarding Sabot Trainer). So it's fair to say that the majority of rds were practice, although I can't comment on what the guys did on their Gunner Mech (B1) and Gunnery instructor courses
Filled with High Explosive Substitute - a wax based substance designed to give the Projectile the same ballistic performance as a HESH round. And it looks like she injected it into her thighs, the fat tart.
