Gareth Davies Posted 28 January , 2018 Share Posted 28 January , 2018 The Tank Corps Gunnery School at Merlimont used Dotters* on all its courses. I have had a quick rummage around the extensive library and can find a few references to dotters but I can't find out when they entered British service, nor can I find out how widespread their use was. Are there any Dotter experts out there? * Dotter: A training round that allowed a standard weapon to be used without live ammunition, consisting of a spring loaded cartridge, a rod that slid in the barrel and a paper target set about 15 cms in front of the muzzle. When the gun was fired the sliding rod would make a hole in the paper. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
