The Old Comrades Association of L (Néry) Battery was formed in 1990 by Tom Jackson and for the past few years has embraced N Battery (The Eagle Troop). This union imitates the recent status of the serving battery in 1st Regiment RHA and also reflects the association the two batteries have experienced throughout their history's. We are an informal association with the main aim o f holding an annual reunion every August bank holiday weekend in Barnard Castle. At our reunions we attract between sixty and eighty in number including wives, girlfriends and partners. In August 2018 we will be holding our twentyninth reunion.
The strong bond between the former members of the two batteries is helped by Graham "Moose" Moore, ex Eagles, who has been coming to the reunions for a good number of years.
I joined L (Néry) Battery in 1962 and remained with them until 1976 when I moved to 49 Fd Regiment and in 1982 to 45 Fd Regiment. I have run the OCA since 1994/5 with the help of Robbie Ross and Andy Munn.
L(Néry) Battery is now part of 3rd Regiment RHA at Albemarle Barracks in Northumberland in the same role as previously in 1st Regiment RHA, a Tactical Group Battery with observation parties including FAC and are about 30 personnel in strength. Since this print update I believe L Battery has now moved back to 1RHA at Larkhill.
