Today is Gunners DayGunners' creed:
"We will cut our enemies down in droves. Our fires will be the substance of their nightmares. We will protect our brothers. The fields of the dead shall serve us evidence of our passing."
Those who are interested in history know very well that in the first battle of Panipath, Babur defeated Ibrahim Lodi in 1526. Babar could defeat a much numerically stronger force by using canons. That was the first time canons were used in Indian battle-fields.
Those who followed Kargil war in 1999, know very well how Artillery played a crucial role in defeating the Paki Northern Light Infantry Regiments who intruded and occupied/built bunkers at Dras, Batalik, Mushkoh and Kargil. It is now clear that without artillery support, the infantry could not clear the heights of Kargil.
Today the Regiment of Artillery is celebrating Gunners Day in India. May God provide you enough fire-power to destroy the enemy and support the Infantry and Armoured Regiments of India.
May God give you enough power to follow the motto: "Sarvatra Izzat-o-Iqbal".
