  2. Hi There A little bit of info for you 5 AA Division is a UK based division part of Ack Ack command from 1939 until 1943 and coverded Bristol, Cardif, Swansea, Newport, portland, Portsmouth, Gloucester, Southamton, Plymouth and airfileds of 10 Group. The divison was disbanded in 1943 but teh Brigades becam apart of a Group. The division had 5 Brigades 35, 45, 46, 47, and 55. The different Regiments that served in each brigade veried through out as units were sent of to the feild army and new ones replaced them. All the Light Anti Aircraft Regiments in the Division were in 55 Brigade in
  3. Guys Please don’t shoot the messenger here but having read the thread and spoke to a few people can I propose a compromise. What I see is a little bit of unintentional unfairness creeping in. One tank owner gets his Tank low loaded to the event paid for buy the organisers there for he is happy to pay his very fair £15 a head. The second Tank owner transports his Tank and Vehicles at is own expense (in excess of a £1000) and therefore feels a little agreed of paying £15 ahead for his party. Compromise. Offer the second tank owner a contribution to the movement costs at an equivalent co
  4. Hi Guys Just cought up with this thread looking at the orgianal photos it looks to me as priviously said 5th Yorkshire Infantry Division. All the other points made then add up they were in Italy untill very near the end of teh war when they where moved to Northern Europe. The Number on the left looks like a 44 wich means that it is an infantry division and if it is the 5th Division then that makes the Regiment 156th (Lanarkshire Yeomanry) Field Regiment RA(TA) Some info 156th under the command of Lt Col Younger saw action in the Middle East, Sicily, Anzio and further into Italy
  5. Sorry that’s the 31st July. Its a weekend event Veterans on the Saturday and Public on the Sunday. I'm afraid it will not be like the Artillery Days of all but we are trying to get the Equipment of the RA from WW2 to today.
  6. Just thought I would add a Photo of the Garrison with Ian Furey-Kings' Bofors with a very high ranking detachment
  7. Its a nice bit of kit and great photo. The Garrison managed to Brorrow one for our display in St James Park in 2005
  8. Hi fellow Artillery enthusiasts this year I am organising 2 events where I am trying to amass all the different British Artillery of WW2. For the Route to Victory 1st 3rd May I have 25pdrs, Sexton, 75mm Pack and hopefully an M10 Achilles. For the Big Gunner one at the Royal School of Artillery 31st June 1st August, I am hoping to get the set. We have already got a full troop of 25pdrs complete with all the Vehicles that would be part of the Troop, a section of airborne Pack 75mm. We are working on the Sexton again but we would like a 3.7, Bofors, 5.5 inch, 6pdr and a 17pdr to name but the

I am organising 2 events this year where I am truing to amass the Different Artillery of WW2. For the Route to Victory 1st 3rd May and one at the Royal School of Artillery 31st June 1st August
  10. I did my Advance guns course on the 105 Pack at the RSA in about 1984. It was what some called a Gunners Gun. I had the opertunity to blank fire one in 2008 and hope to again soon.

  13. Just a short note to say we have finaly got out 150cm Searchlight working on Carbons using a war time generator. I know there are some very fine 90cm Searchlights around working but we beleve we have the only working 150cm in the UK if not Europe. I have attached a few photos to show the searchlight in action. The beam of light is very intense and has a blue tint to it and it looked fantastic. Even with the light pollution the beam still was very strong. We have been informed since then that it could be seen from Chitern which is about ten miles away. The girls on the long arm enjoyed it a
  14. Well its all over I have put a similar thread on the re-enactors Forum but it dose go double with you guys. I would like to say thanks to all the Vehicle owners that took part in Route to Victory. You all to a man and woman restored my faith in Human nature when on that Monday morning in the rain you all agreed to stay and put on a show for the Village no matter what the weather. As you know I tried to marry the best of what the Military Vehicle Owners/MVT can do with the best from the re-enactment in the UK and neither side let us down. It was an experiment in a different type of
