19 Regiment Role and Structure
Bhurtpore Barracks, Tidworth Hants SP9 7AS
History19th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Scottish Gunners) were formed in 1900 as 17 Brigade Royal Field Artillery and were renumbered 19th Regiment in 1947. However, the individual batteries were formed in the 1700s.
It has been extensively involved on operations since the First World War, including World War Two in mainland Europe (where 28 Battery was the first to fire), Tunisia and Italy. Since then the Regiment has served in; Korea, Hong Kong, Aden, Bosnia, Cyprus, Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Regiment served in Afghanistan in 2012, this deployment marked 10 years of involvement on operations in Afghanistan.
On 12 December 2012 the Regiment changed its name from The Highland Gunners to become The Scottish Gunners. In doing so, the Regiment assumed the heritage of 40th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Lowland Gunners) which was disbanded under recent restructuring. 38 Battery was subordinated from 40th Regiment to 19th Regiment bringing with it the Lowland Gunner Heritage.
