Brian's Build

Post by Brian Fleming »

First, I want to thank all of the builders who shared their knowledge, tips, techniques and wisdom.

My build is an homage to my Dad who, as a young gunner with W Battery, 4RCHA in 1956 serving in Camp Utopia, New Brunswick, participated in the last live shoot of a 25 Pdr in Canada.

I still have few details to add but it's about 99% complete. The model is being donated to the military museum in Gagetown, New Brunswick. Gagetown happens to be the current home of W Battery.

UBIQUE!

I'm ex-Air Force so please be gentle.

A follow-up. Today the 25-Pounder was presented to the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery School. Specifically the School's "W" Battery. The same battery that fired the last live round by a regular force Canadian artillery unit back in December of 1956 at Camp Utopia, New Brunswick. Where my father, a young gunner, observed from the CP.

What an honour.
