Plassey Day

Original Title: 1 Company, Bengal Artillery
Present Title: 9 (Plassey) Battery, Royal Artillery
Status: 47 Regt
Date: 17 June 1748
Website: http://www.army.mod.uk/artillery/regiments/24670.aspx
The battery won its honorary title at the Battle of Plassey, 23 June 1757. Led by General Robert Clive, the British victory laid the foundations for the empire in India. The battle was almost entirely an artillery engagement, and the victory went some way to avenge the 45 members of the battery that had been killed at the Black Hole of Calcutta some months previously.9 (Plassey) Battery take time each year to mark the anniversary of this famous victory.

Great Gunners

Gnr Henry Reed GC

Gnr Henry ‘Herbert’ Reed was an AA Gunner on board the SS Courmant in the North Sea off Northumberland when it came under heavy coordinated air and E-boat attack. While driving off an air attack, he was badly wounded in the stomach. Despite his pain, ‘Herbert’ rescued a badly injured Chief Officer from the nearby ship’s bridge and carried him down two decks to safety while the ship was still under attack. The SS Courmont and the Chief Officer survived the attacks to reach the safety of Sunderland but, sadly, Herbert Reed died of his wounds.
Year: 1941
