    Anybody interested and paticularly ex Field Gunners The Fleet Air Arm Field Gun Association have their own Website, just google Field Gun to find it. Pompey & Guzz sites can also be entered from here. The site shows the history of Field Gunning and there is a “Members Area” where ex’s stay in touch

    @Talbot6832 exactly…..this government i screwing up everything for our armed forces! They need support!…..The goverment can’t afford to give them proper equipment now they are taking away more funding. join my FB group “Britannia Rules The Waves!….not after these defence cuts she won’t!”

    @hbomb1964 I suppose its a question of these days if its too hard in the Navy no one will join, when the old days it was I want to join as it is hatrd ( to prove ones self) also the female ratings would not have to do this so then the males would say why do we have to do this kind of stuff. Something anong those lines I guess.

    We used to be based next door to the Training ground for this stuff, must have watched this hundreds of time live, never fails to astound me, gonna take this to my interview as an example of “Teamwork” fantastic stuff. You can almost smell the rum and gunpowder! Bring it back!!! Not this pussy stuff you see nowadays.
    Wonder how many of today’s youth could manage this?

    I watched the Fleet Air Arm Gunnies a lot while at Daedalus in the 80’s. Saw how hard they trained (and drank!) and the batterings they took – total respect for every one of them. Watching this gave me goosepimples! Oh and they had great ‘do’s’ in the FG mess!

    bring back our traditions. the health and safety people will bleed us dry and take away everything that makes us what we are !

    i took part in a march through in the last stand royal tournament. you can buy the dvd of the final show online. not exactly sure why they stopped it maybe it was just too much extra work for the regiments involved, after all this tournament is done by real serving soldiers not civilians.

    I believe the event continues at HMS Collingwood’s Open Day under a different name. Not sure if it’s the same though.
