This may be a really bone question from a gunner of twelve years standing BUT What is the actual score with saluting Guns ? I have never served in a Gun Regt so my experience of the big smelly things are polishing them on guard. Now I know the score (pretty much) with guns on parade, but I am keen to know the every day application. For example if a gun is in the gun park, do you salute it before starting work ? I heard that if guns roll past the main gate, the guy on stag should knock up up, true ? How about non-gun arty weapon systems ? Do you salute MLRS or HVM rolling past and if the latter is true do you bang one up to smoe scrote wandering past with an LML ? What about guns in non-gun regts ? Say you had an old 25 pdr in the garage of a Rapier Bty, do they still pay respects to the gun or is it not "their colours" Whats your experience ?
