The Royal Artillery, Woolwich
A Celebration

The Royal Artillery's historic move in May 2007 from Woolwich to Larkhill formally marked a change in the 291-year association between the Royal Artillery and Woolwich, with traditions extending far beyond 1716 to the reign of Henry VIII.

The Royal Artillery Woolwich - A Celebration commemorates this event and its history through a richly illustrated colour volume. The book looks at the story of how the Gunners first came to Woolwich, the foundation and expansion of the Regiment, life in the garrison, its barracks, messes and church, battle honours, the evolution of the Royal Artillery Museum and life in the Regiment today centred on its operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Written by Brigadier Ken Timbers, who served four tours of duty in Woolwich, the book contains over 200 images and include anecdotes, memories and memorabilia from Gunners with first-hand knowledge of the Regiment.

'It would make an excellent Christmas or birthday present for any Gunner. Brigadier Ken has succeeded in compiling an album that will satisfy the curiosity of family members for many generations to come.'
