As he used to say "with a T not an F"

 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.
