    Experimental results ar-e presented which chow that the13; translational velocities of pint on generated vortex rings often undergo oscillations, similar to those recently discovered for drop generated rings . An attempt has been made to minimize uncertainties by utilising both dye and - hydrogen bubbles for visualization and carefully repeating13; measurements on the same nominal piston conditions . The results unambiguously show that under most conditions, both for laminar and turbulent rings and for rings generated for pipes and orifices, the oscillations are present . The present results, together with the earlier results on drop generated rings, give support to the view13; that translational velocity oscillations are probably an13; inherent feature of translating vortex ring fields .
