The Royal Artillery (RA) is the common name for the Royal Regiment of Artillery, an arm of the British Army. Despite its name, it comprises a number of regiments.



The introduction of artillery into the British Army came as early as the fourteenth century but was not a permanent body, Henry the VIII recognised what artillery could achieve and created a semi permanent body of artillery. The recognition of the need for a permanent body of artillery however, did not happen until 1716.
