Lerwill Cup Rugby 2013 ‘Le Crunch’

Shrivenham Rugby Team 3

Match Report written by Lt Col Charlie Grist

The first inter-collegiate rugby union challenge match was played between the Defence Academy of the UK and the French Collège Interarmées de Défense in 1998.  The match, named the Lerwill Cup after the donor of the trophy, Lieutenant Colonel Tim Lerwill, has taken place every year since.  The match alternates between Paris and Shrivenham; over the past decade the Cup has stayed in Paris twice.  This year the French travelled to a very blustery Shrivenham where they were disappointed, for the second year running, in a hard fought game. The Defence Academy side definitely made the most of its home field advantage. The touchline support from ACSC was brilliant as was the cracking bar/BBQ supplied by ESS, and the music of the RAF Central Band.

Traditionally there has not been a brush that can consistently clean the chamber of a large calibre weapon system, this is due to the sometimes drastic change in profile that is demonstrated within the chamber.

We at AGL have overcome that issue and have developed the Universal Chamber Brush (UCB). This brush allows the operator to not only clean the appropriate chamber size of a specific weapon system but also to clean the first 500mm after the “Commencement of Rifling” (CFR) where the most fouling occurs within a weapon system.

Airnesco sponsored the U7 Maidstone Rangers for the season 2012/2013 and they finished in a fantastic position at the end of the league, although at this age it is ‘champagne’ football (no league tables) they played a brilliant season with lots of wins thanks to their fantastic coaching team.

Avoiding lengthy downtimes for cleaning boiler tubes is critically important, especially with the industry now moving forward into the Biomass sector, the need for the boiler to be running efficiently is paramount. Airnesco can offer online cleaning equipment working in temperatures up to 800ºc. The cost savings against other operating systems and the ability to get the tubes clean where our competitors fail make the equipment absolutely essential for the cleaning of on-line fire tube boilers. The equipment, first developed in 1947, and constantly updated and improved since, allows one man to work in a confined space, with only 18” clearance needed in front of the boiler, and offers ease of use which are fundamental when working in this type of demanding environment with hot temperatures, reducing the need for hard manual labour.

In 2012 it was decided that we, at AGL, should review the Airnesco Barrel Cleaning System BCS and determine what we felt needed upgrading and modernising.  The fundamental design of the system is simple by nature and we wanted to reflect this in the way that the BCS is stowed and transported.
