The Formations section of Formations and Markings gives the artillery units present in selected Theatres of Operation, Campaigns and Stations.
Where possible Orders of Battle will be given although only those formations with an artillery element will be linked to a new page.
The individual formation pages will have the formation badge and a list of artillery units in that formation with their Arm of Service (AoS) numbers where known. These pages are only accurate for the given date. The inclusion of formation badges and Arm of Service numbers are no guarentee that these badges were ever used by a particular unit. They show what the regulations state should have been used but some units may not have been there long enough to have actually applied them.
At Divisional level Field Regiments are listed in order of numerical seniority except where photographic or documentary evidence of Arm of Service numbers is available. For a description of the Arm of Service numbering system, see the Markings section of Formations and Markings. This section also contains an explanation of the Royal Artillery Tactical Markings system. For the actual numbers and letters used on individual Tac Signs see the Organistion section of this site.
