    Long overdue, but still sad to see them go.

    I was surprised this wasn't posted earlier. Good day by all accounts, big crowd turned up to see them off. My be able to muster a few photos. Keep an eye on tomorrows papers, plenty of Jurno's there.

      Will they use 105s for gun salutes now? Are they all going?

        They'll probably keep the ceremonial guns. No more live shoots with 25s though.

          They'll never have a weapon like that again, noting that will be as easily maned, moved and give the same amount of fire power.

            That last shot was rather poignant, the pause after seemed to say 'farewell...'

                  The "this is the last year we're firing the 25s" rumour has been around for a looooooong time, but the shoot you saw there was a specially organised final shoot, with 1 gun detachment from each Regiment.

                    Good show today, I enjoyed it, i got over 300 photo's so I will go about finding good ones and upload a few here.

                    Wasn't on a Gun, which annoyed me a bit, but it was still a good day.

                    Only problem was I have been farting since I ate the stew!!
                    I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

                    Please PM me to correct me.

                    But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

                    I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

                      Upload them to the gallery section under its own folder, I'm sure there hundreds floating around.

                        Will do so in the morning.

                        I assume uploading photo's that don't show faces is all on the up and up right?

                              25pdr should have been got rid of long ago. Waste of time and money when it came to maintanance and ammunition.

                              105 is a better weapon all round. Better manouverability, high angle capability, heavier payload. The only slight advantage that the 25pdr had over the 105 was it could be brought into action slightly quicker. I know all you RDF guys will reminisce about it for years but in the 120 mortar, ye have a modern effective weapon with which ye can really justify yere existence within the corps.

                              The crew from 2FAR that did the single gun action showed exactly how good the 105 is. I try to avoid praising dubs whenever i can but, nicely done lads.

                              To the guys that have pictures, please post them asap.

                              The ceremonial guns in 2FAR will be staying put and there is also ongoing discussions about a battery of ceremonial guns being given to 1FAR.

                              There is also a shitload of cartridge cases left over and nobody knows where they came from!!!
