The Australian Artillery Association is pleased to provide an avenue for all Australian Gunners to record their memories within the Gunner's Memories section whereby you may record a story as recalled by you in your own words and place it on the site for all to see, a bit like an edited "blog" if you know what I mean.   Stories will be listed in the year they occurred.   During the drafting process you are requested to identify the year the incident took place and the specific date if possible then with as much information as possible retell your story for all to read and recall the moment for those that were there.   Stories may be as simple as your recollection of a particular piece of equipment being brought into service or a funny incident in the Mess or on the sports oval or during a field exercise.   Stories can be humorous, serious, tongue in cheek and about any facet of Army life.   Photographs may be included if desired.   Those years containing memories/stories are shown in Blue.
