NOT THE LAST...Not by any means the last but nevertheless regarded by many as the last because it was the last with full-sized guns over the full Earl's Court course, therefore many regard it as being the last whereas it is not strictly speaking the last, "last" Royal Naval Field gun race, FAA versus Portsmouth. Note the black armbands.
Please note that when the commentator refers to this as the "Last" field gun race he means that TO HIS KNOWLEDGE at that time this would be the last field gun race, i.e., the last with full-sized guns over the full Earl's Court course, whereas in the broader sense it is not in actual fact the last, "Last" as the race continues to be run in various guises to this very day.
108 years have passed, and Ladysmith belongs to the Zulu Kingdom of KwaZulu-Natal. But the feat of the gunners from "Powerful" and "Terrible" has never been forgotten.
