19 gun salute for Parliament House

johnboy 22 September 2010 2

The following’s come across my desk:

1. As part of the ceremony for the Opening of Parliament, Australia’s Federation Guard will conduct an artillery gun salute from Parliament House between 3:10pm and 3:40pm, on Tuesday 28 September 2010.

2. During this activity, six artillery guns will fire 19 rounds at 5 second intervals using blank cartridges. These cartridges do not contain any projectiles, however they do contain gunpowder. Loud noises will be heard during this time.

So, as usual, don’t panic.

Will the guns actually be able to be heard over the top of Oakeshott’s drone?
