    IFCCS 5.2

    This is a reason, that the top two lines are read allowed to ensure everything is still good to go before firing and that the first rd of adj and FFE are map checked.  The senior supervisor ( The NCM ) would know this.

    passing of Dearman, Paul Michael

    MWO Paul Dearman was my TSM in C troop H Bty 3 RCHA.  A great TSM that mentored me from Gnr to MBdr.  It was a huge shock when I heard he passed away.  As mentioned, he was big and loud.  I remember he had great Christmas parties at his house and his wife made such a huge spread for everyone to...

    I dont think the 109's will come back but then again the Leopard's are coming back...  I know that they are putting a 109 at the front gate of Shilo.  A second one is for spare parts for the on in the Shilo museum (25B)  ....and no, it isnt a Germany gun from C Bty as people think.  It is an...

    1 or 2 RCHA

    I was in 3 Horse for 6 yrs and 2 Horse for 10 yrs.  I have to say I have a much better time in 2 HA.  It is a better place I think because you are on a base with the rest of the Bde, unlike 1 Hourse in Shilo. Petawawa is a fantastic base, a true warriors training ground. But both Regiments are...

    Posted to 2 RCHA...

    I was in 2 HA for 10 yrs from 92-02. The unit is not as big as it should be but has 4 Batterys.  D,E,F and HQ and Services.  If you are a Sig you will probably be in HA and Svc's Bty.  It has a large compound in the 'Z Lines'  This Regt has always been the smallest in numbers but is a great...

    Mortars: 51 mm, 60 mm, 81 mm, 120 mm & more

    Just got back from my TSMs crse. The attitude of the School seems to be that we (arty) want to move away from mortars all together.  This I think will be a good thing except maybe keeping a Bty that has the ability to employ it like the Para bty did.  Maybe the SOG will have that.  Who knows. ...

    looking for an old friend - Dave Bell

    Really?  not sure if we are talkin about the same guy.  Dave that I knew joined in 86 with me.  I was in Shilo last summer and no one had heard from him.  Thanks anyway.

    Replacing the M109s

    No, the relation to - and + angle for the barrel is equated to the versitality of the platform.  The MOBAT can fire 6400Mils so the idea that it can't drop to -80 mils is mute.  The terain will decide as to how the gun/platform will deploy.

    Farewell to arms - guns retired

    I would have to say that the demise of the M 109 is tragic.  It is systemic of the way the army is going.  First it was the 81mm taken from the infanty to the arty, now the M 109's going away.  Seems to me that it is a money saving sceem.  It is trully a sad day for the Arty and the Army as a whole.

    Dallaire recalls Rwandan death threat

    I have to agree. Gen Dallaire is an outstanding Soldier who cares for his troops and the mission. His book, while depressing is a great book. It compliments Gen MacKenzies book WRT the poor direction of the UN. After the first deployment of troops under NATO I agree that they can do the job...

    Voice or Data

    I agree with keeping some type of voice communication. nothing can express to sit rep better than the articulation of the person speaking. As for orders from CP to Guns, there must be a system in place for people to talk and to confirm data. GACS was an old system that was not used very...
