Seven senior members of the Regiment have had their gun safety qualifications renewed during a two day course, held at Warwick Camp.  The course instructor,  Sergeant Major Instructor Gunnery (SMIG) WO2 Leon Holdridge from the Royal Artillery Depot in Larkhill, UK was flown out specifically to conduct the training.

The aim of the course was to recertify individuals who may have responsibility for the safe operation of the guns during their ceremonial role.  The  course also allows for revisions of standards and best practices to be imparted.  WO2 Holdridge commented on the professionalism of the members of the Gun Troop and was pleased that some of the older traditions of the Royal Artillery which had now gone in the UK, were still maintained in Bermuda.

The Bermuda Regiment holds two 25 pounder howitzers dating back to the desert campaigns of World War Two.  These Guns are used for saluting purposes at both the Queen's Birthday Parade in June and at Remembrance Day in November. They are operated by members of the Bermuda Regiment's Gun's and Assault Pioneer Platoon (GAP)
