Field Gun

Hone your skills in teamwork, coordination, speed and strength in this historic Royal Navy activity.

Royal Navy Field Gun 

With its origins going back to 1899, competing in Field Gun competitions demands teamwork, leadership, and moral and physical courage.

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity Field Gun Competition is held annually at HMS Collingwood where 21 crews from units across the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force, including units from overseas such as Naples, Gibraltar and Cyprus, currently compete for the prestigious Brickwoods trophy.

Each crew of 18 highly disciplined, motivated, and physically fit Field Gunners, races to assemble and antique Field Gun and run with it, disassembling and reassembling as the competition requires, before dramatically dragging the gun 'home'.

Competing for the prestigious Brickwoods trophy remains a key aspiration for all units involved in Royal Navy Field Gun. The current competition is recognised at all levels of the Service as embodying and championing the physical and mental courage, discipline, leadership, and teamwork required as part of the moral component of operational capability.
