The festivities took place as the troops completed a full day of operational duties.

19th Regiment Royal Artillery ( 19 Regt RA ) has become The Scottish Gunners as a result of 40th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Lowland Gunners) being put into suspended animation as part of the Army 2020 restructuring process. In addition, 38 (Seringapatam) Battery has been subordinated to 19 Regt RA .
