Portsmouth Field Gun
I came across this the other day which was a sign that hung in the Portsmouth Field Gun training shed on HMS Excellent to remind everyone who was fortunate enough to be selected to ‘run’ that whatever happened winning was always the only result that would be acceptable to those who had gone before.

“For those who thrive on competition and those whose nature is strengthened by formidable tasks and seemingly insurmountable odds even at the risk of defeat enter the arena in the quest for victory”.
