Something that has been bugging me and would like to know the correct answer When bringing the Battery to position of attention, when is it and who should use the full Battery title ? Over the years I have heard all sorts of strangisms and would mind knocking the facts If you are confused with what I am asking I'll paint a little scenario Lets say the battery is paraded for the BC, first off the nominal roll is taken by BONCO or a SNCO who then hands to BSM who hands to BK who will eventually hand over to the BC There are 3 choices in what to say to bring the Bty up, either a. Battery, Battery-shun b. Battery, 654 Battery Royal Artillery, Battery-shun c. Battery, 654 (Umberto Gorge 1756) Battery Royal Artillery, Battery-shun So the question is 1. Which of those (if any) are correct ? 2. Who can say which one and when ? I seem to remember that the full blown title was a BC or even BK thing, or is it a personal preference thing ?
