The Royal Garrison Artillery was formed in 1899 alongside the Royal Field Artillery and the Royal Horse Artillery. The regiment was the ‘technical’ branch of the Royal Artillery, responsible for manning the guns of the Empire’s forts and fortresses, including coastal artillery batteries, the heavy gun batteries attached to each infantry division and the guns of the siege artillery.
The 110 Companies were based around the world, from the UK and Mediterranean to the Caribbean and Asia.
