On Sunday 16th April the regimental family returned to the Royal Hospital Chelsea to attend Gunner Sunday and spend time with the In-Pensioners. A large gathering of serving, veterans and their families attended the Service at the Royal Hospital.
The Royal Artillery Standard Bearers, members of the serving regiment and veterans joined the In-Pensioners on parade where they were inspected by Dr F Keating, Physician & Surgeon RHC, Brigadier Mark Pountain CBE and Colonel Charlie Harmer ADC. During the Parade music was played by The Guards Association Band.
After the Parade, the regimental family joined the In-Pensioners and congregation in the Chapel for Choral Matins. Following the Service, a curry lunch was served in the In-Pensioners Club. We are very fortunate to be invited to join the residents of the Royal Hospital on this special occasion and we always receive a tremendous welcome.
Thank you to everyone who travelled to attend this special event and we look forward to welcoming you to Gunner Sunday on 21st April 2024. If you are a Gunner, past or present, then Gunner Sunday is an opportunity to visit this very special event.
