English term or phrase: civilian field gun run team
contesto: militare
Dal testo si evince che si tratta di un evento organizzato per celebrare un'operazione condotta durante la guerra dei Boeri. So che Field gun significa anche "cannone di campagna" ma in questo caso non riuscirei ad inserirlo...
Sarebbe quindi una squadra composta da civili che fa una corsa ....?????
Allego il contesto:Alenia Marconi Systems was proud to sponsor the Field Gun Run. The XXX Field Gun Association is the first civilian team to perform this gruelling and highly specialist activity since it officially ceased to exist as a services event which had been performed at the Royal Tournament from 1907 to 1999

qui sotto c'è la storia
(hai presente la corsa dei ceri a Gubbio?)

In 1880 the first Military Tournament was staged in an Agricultural Hall from which the present Royal Tournament evolved in 1883 but the Royal Navy did not take part until 1896. During Ladysmith (1899) Captain Perry Scott landed a number of 4.7 inch guns to have carriages made for them. Two of these together with four 12 cwt 12 pounders were sailed to the Blackjackets. It was during this campaign that one of the gun wheels collapsed. The Blackjackets manhandled the gun over two miles to the top of a hill and into action.

It is these feats which today's Field Gun display re-enacts although it was not until 1919 that the 2 walls and the 28 foot chasm were introduced into the drill. Now only three Commands are represented these are Portsmouth, Devonport and the Fleet Air Arm.

The Royal Tournament has now ended which also marked the end of the Royal Naval Field Gun Runs. The Royal Military Tournament has taken over which has got a site at http://www.rmt2000.mod.uk.

The above shows the Portsmouth Field Gun Team on one of their public runs on Whale Island, which is where the Portsmouth team train.

The popular event of Field Gun has come to an end with the last display of field gun by the Royal Navy being held in the Royal Tournament in 1999. "The Final Chapter" of Field Gun marks the 100 years since the Battle of Ladysmith.

On Monday 2nd August 1999 the last ever Gun Run took place between Portsmouth and the Fleet Air Arm. The Field Gun crews all wore black arms bands which was contrary to their orders. They had been told that a two-second penalty for each of the 18 men in the team wearing an arm band would be given. Both teams wore arm bands so that neither would loose due to penalty points but neither team was penalised.

Il sito citato dice che il cannone da campagna era usato


Explanation:
e cito "nei secoli XVII e XVII" e veniva spinti dai soldati.
La guerra che si cita nella risposta era nel XIX quasi XX secolo e nella battaglia di Ladysmtih i marinai portarono soccorso ai compagni in difficoltà, guidando i cannoni da campo, trainati da buoi. Quando morirono i buoi furono i marinai a spingere questi pesantissimi cannoni da campo.

dimenticavo!


Explanation:
Lo stesso sito ha una versione inglese (non molto bella ma efficace) che il cannone di campagna lo definisce "stone gun" (non field gun) in quanto spara pietre.
