Based in Woolwich
NRHQ RA is the youngest unit in the Royal Artillery, having been formed in 1967. Although its headquarters is based in Woolwich, the unit recruits from all over the UK to provide Army Reserve officers and soldiers in support of operations and exercises. Only half of NRHQ RA is in the Royal Artillery, the rest represent almost every other cap badge in the British Army.
Army formation headquarters
Some of our personnel provide operational planning and support to Army formation headquarters, while others develop niche skills in specific areas. We don’t hold weekly drill nights, but we train regularly in UK and elsewhere around the world, including four opportunities a year to get together and conduct unit training.
Which ever part of NRHQ RA you join, you will need to be motivated, intelligent, able to fit into to a team at short notice and just willing to have a go.
