Can anyone enlighten me the steps of the training course to be a RAC tank gunner, i assume the commonwealth nation who trained in the UK during WW2 such as Canada followed the same protocol training procedures as the British. I assume the following. After basic training as a soldier you were selected as a gunner, driver radio operator or commander. As a gunner you first studied in a class room the basics of gunnery in a tank, how the turret worked traversing and elevation. The guns, the main gun and coaxial machine gun and ammunition, safety procedures etc. The basics of gunnery, the enemy tactics and so on. Then onto a indoor range in a mock up tank turret in front of a diorama using a pencil light as the gun, orders given by an instructor, not sure if this is known as the puff range. Then the next step using a pellet range on a Rypas using a pellet gun to shoot the target. The next step to a open 30 yard range or a coaxial moving target range using machine guns single shot etc before moving onto a live firing range for the main gun such as a 2 or 6 pounder using AP and HE etc. Am i near correct?
