Enquiries to Firepower Museum – Temporary Suspension

The RA Historical Society does not hold personal, regimental or historical records of the Royal Artillery. These are kept in the RA Museum and Library. With the closure of Firepower in Woolwich and the move into a transition period, the Royal Artillery Museums Board has decided to suspend its ability to answer queries on service records and other Regimental and Battery histories. This is due to the transition of the archives and the inability to access it.  We will be working on a solution to this and will keep you updated as we progress. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
