    Default July 1st Canada Day, And What I Got to do at 12 Noon

    Well I had the honour of firing a 1942 25 Pounder at Noon on Canada 2 days ago. It was also the Anny of the Battle of the Somme. This group has now recruited me to be a Member.
    The gun and Limber is towed by the running "QUAD", Most of the Members are getting older and they are looking for "new" Blood with those people knowing a bit about this sort of thing.
    They have a second 25 PDr and are looking for another QUAD and No 27 Limber, so I have contacted several friends that are into that sort of thing to keep an eye out.

    It was a Honour to be asked to do this on Canada Day.

    My Gf got a video of the last strains of Amazing Grace, then the order to fire, and you can see the Gun go off and the smoke.
