Hamel retired from 53 Bty
Troop Commander Lt Adrian Parry said the guns were withdrawn at the end of 2014, with 53 Bty being the Army’s last remaining unit to hold the 105mm L119 light gun.
Lt Parry said after the guns were fired for the last time they were returned to the equipment fleet manager at Bandiana.
“The Queen’s gun will be the last light gun held within the regiments and is safe in the custody of 1 Regt RAA in Brisbane,” he said.
