Get Involved

Looking ahead to 2020….

After a year of relative inactivity, Portsmouth Action Field Gun has taken the decision to shift its focus from senior Command Field Gun to youth Command Field Gun. It is 20 years since the Royal Tournament came to an end, and we have to acknowledge that Field Gun is no longer the high profile event that it once was, particularly in and around Portsmouth where the public runs at Whale Island were woven into the fabric of the city.

We believe however that the values of team work, camaraderie, commitment, effort and striving to be the best at what you do, are important things for successive generations to learn. Most importantly, we believe that Field Gun can teach these values, which is why we want to offer youngsters between the age of 14 and 18 the opportunity to participate.

We have a strong connection with Eastbourne Youth Field Gun and together we believe that we can, over the course of the coming year, train a Youth Command Field Gun Crew to perform a demonstration field gun run at our current base at Baker Barracks on Thorney Island.

This is our commitment….

What we need in order to fulfil this is a minimum of 25 young people who can be available on weekends between the beginning of April and the end of July 2020.

This is just the beginning….

Contact us if you are able to give us your time and commitment.
