    Hallo Drew,

    I have read that the railway artillery managed to lose off a number of shells, does this report contain anyhing else?

    That's it, just the two pages. There may be another report related to railway artillery somewhere.

    Thanks, I have just reminded myself on the story which is in ATB29. One of the large railway guns was allowed to make a practice shoot at a German S-boat, and later, during the channel dash, the 14 inch coastal guns fired 33 times in the general direction of radar targets showing the ships, there was no observation of fall of shot so no evidence of hitting the targets.
