Battery Bars

The social life of the regiment often meant working hard and playing hard. There were plenty of places to socialise within the regiment of

an evening. There was the officers mess, warrant officers & sergeants mess and Junior NCO’s mess. There was the Gunners bar and in addition a further bar (nicknamed the blue oyster by some) created in what was the NAAFI canteen of the Lance Club. That’s 5 bars in total so far, hopefully you’re keeping count!

In addition to this each battery also had a bar under the accommodation, 15, 19, 36, HQ, oh and lets not forget REME’s bar too, taking the total to 10 bars, and if that wasn’t enough occasionally the ‘Bennet’ centre was put to good use as a social venue.
