The FAT is cleared for running. It was a little reluctant to start but adding fresh gas should solve that. The ¾ ton requires a bit more work. It did start briefly and then refused all further efforts to start again. Many thanks to Doug Loney, Andrew McRae, Sean Black, Cameron Black and Harry Moon.
Military customs and traditions enrich Regimental life for members of the 15th Field Artillery Regiment, RCA. Such was the case when the Oldest and Youngest Gunners sat at the head table during the Soldier's Christmas Dinner 0n 10 December 2022. Gunner Victoria Haussmann, on the right, was the Youngest Gunner for 2022. On the left is Sergeant Donato Calogero, the Youngest Gunner from 1982, forty years earlier. See more photos from 2022 here.

FYI: Yorke Island Trip confirmed for April 21-24.
Lots to do this year for those who are motivated.... Construction, fort maintenance, trail guides, sweepers and scrapers.
Even more spots open for "Whale Watchers" and some with the specialty of "Cruise ship incident prevention experts*".
Both categories include folks who are just wanting to visit the island with no commitments other than moving their own gear.
Hope to see you all soon.
Anyone interested in joining me on this adventure? email@example.com
