In every battle for over 300 years - Ubique
The Royal Artillery - FIND, TRACK and STRIKE at range anywhere, in all weathers and at any time, in order to defeat the enemy.
26 May 1716
FIND, TRACK and STRIKE
We specialise in a vast number of trade areas which makes the Gunners one of the most diverse units, with lots of opportunities. Many of the trades found across the Army can be followed in the Royal Artillery - they range from:
- Gun Operators
- Missile Operators
- Drone Operators and Pilots
- Mounted Horse Gunners
- High Tech Target Surveillance Operators
"Everywhere" - this is our motto.
Some of the countries we have a military presence are:
- Northern Ireland
Our family is as diverse as our equipment and capability. People from an array of cultures and social backgrounds operate our high tech equipment with professionalism.
The quality of a Gunner is achieved through investment in training and educating our soldiers; something we take great pride in.
RHQ Royal Artillery, Larkhill Garrison
The heart of the Gunners is located in Larkhill on the edge of Salisbury Plain, having moved from our historic home of Woolwich. Our presence today stretches across the UK, from Scotland and the North East, to Plymouth and the South coast.
With the majority of our units in the South we offer great stability.
The Royal Artillery Historical Society (RAHS) exists to encourage and promote an interest in the organisation, equipment and history of the Royal Artillery (RA) in particular and gunnery in general. Membership is open to all serving and retired, regular and reserve and volunteer ranks of the RA. Applications from others for affiliate membership of the society should be made in writing to the secretary and supported in writing by a full member. The subscription is £15 per year.

The Royal School of Artillery
The Royal School of Artillery is an international Centre of Excellence for Artillery Training. The staff is made up of highly qualified Instructors from the Royal Artillery (RA), several overseas artillery instructors and Civil Servants.
Army Training Centre Pirbright
ATC Pirbright delivers the 14-week training course known as the Common Military Syllabus which is completed by all adult recruits (age 17+) when they join the Army. The course is designed to develop individual and team skills in a progressive manner, preparing recruits for their Initial Trade Training, where they learn the specific skills for their chosen Army trade.
We have been involved in almost every battle and operation the Army has fought in its 300 year history.
We are no longer granted battle honours, instead have the motto ‘Ubique’ which means “everywhere” and our colours are our guns. On parade our guns are right of the line, as the senior Regiment.
