Message from the Commanding Officer to the Regiment.
Lt Colonel D.E.A Tucker Royal Artillery.
Some of you have spent all your military life in this Regiment, Whilst others, like myself , have had
a short tour with 24.
Whatever the lenght of association we can all feel proud to have served in a happy Regiment of high
reputation. Today is therefore a sad occasion, we say goodbye to an equipment which has served us well and to many old friends.
We look forward to the challenge of mastering new equipments which I am sure will be achieved to the same high standards in
our new Regiments.
May God keep you in peace and happiness wherever you may go.
