On 22nd of June 2012, 49 (Inkerman) Battery was re-subordinated. A Gun Battery from 1779 to 1993, and then Headquarter Battery from 1993 to 2012, and now an independent battery with both RAF and RA troops in the orbat. The equipment that they will be using is called Land Enviroment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) which promises to deliver a significant improvement to battlespace management for the British Army, Leapp will operate SAAB G-AMB radars to detect, track and identify air contacts and produce a local air picture.
There is a new Battery Commander now in place, his name is Squadron Leader Dave Bates, I would like to welcome him to the fold.
Details of the reunion will be sent out next weekend, so you should receive them around Wednesday because of the bank holiday.
The reason for the website not being changed yet, is because we are paid up until February 2017 with those that host the site. So bear with us until then. Please do not try and use the contact us page , as it is of no use, so contact myself or Dave Parker on our e-mail.
