Description: Responsible for all artillery in the army. The first permanent artillery regiments were formed in 1717, although there had been artillery present within the army before this in times of war. It was under the control of the board of ordnance. In 1722 the Royal Regiment of Artillery was formed. In 1793 the first Royal Horse Artillery regiments were formed, lighter artillery pulled by horses that could keep up with cavalry. In 1855 all regiments transferred to the control of the army. In 1899 the Royal Artillery split into three groups, The Royal Field Artillery and The Royal Horse Artillery, the Royal Garrison Artillery and the Royal Artillery. They acted independently of each other. In 1924 they re-formed into a single regiment once more, named the Royal Regiment of Artillery.
