17th Field Regiment waiting for the inspection by the King and Queen on 1942 05 24
The progress in training was now very evi­dent and range re­cords were smashed right and left.  Record times were set for the fire and move­ment course by Char­lie and Dog troops who tied for first place with a time of 40 min­utes.  The course was 3 miles and with 4 posi­tions to be occu­pied.  The tar­gets were timed from the order “Action” until fire for effect and OP offi­cers reac­tions were timed from the burst of one round to the burst of the next less the time of flight.  The fol­low­ing is the IG's record of the troop and bat­tery fire and move­ment.
