[RndTbl] Expanding hard drive to utilized unused space

I have a system built on a Linux raid 1 using ext3.

When the system was created there was a large amount of space left
available on both of the raid 1 disks for future expansion of a
partition as required.

I know expanding the file system using LVM is relatively trivial but
this system was not built using LVM.

Is it possible to expand the partitions, expand the RAID 1 to fill the
partitions, and then expand the ext3 file system on the RAID1?
