Has anyone on here purchased or had an SCC field gun made lately? We are a relatively new unit in the north east and it keeps getting mentioned by our fund raiser that he thinks we should have one? Anyone any ideas please?
Brickwoods Day?The trouble is, most of the Field Guns I've seen, including Pee-Wee versions, are actual guns. The VCC ones locally are actual 7 pound Boer war Field Pieces. Back in the day when they used to fire stuff or put Thunderflashes down the barrel, I'm led to believe they were even tested and proofed by RNAD Frater. It ou could find some ammo, you could use them for real.
So its a case or where you'd get one, without the astronomical cost of having a copy made.
VCC units do close - for example HMS DOLPHIN in recent years - their gun must have gone somewhere.
Not to break PERSEC, but I will be involved in a VCC Field Gun Championship not too far from where I am currently sitting, tomorrow. I will ask.
