In Memorium

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. 
We have been informed that we will be getting an invite off the battery in the near future, this will help us forge  a stronger bond that we need to keep us a successful OCA, and we look forward to seeing more of the members at our next reunion in 2014. This will be the 20th anniversary of the founding of the OCA, and we are looking for a really good turnout that weekend. Just to update those of you who do not use the message forum, Sqn Ldr Ortyl has left the battery and Sqn Ldr Mark Hinde has replaced him as BC. He will giving us an update on the battery and the progress with the new equipment.
