But all gunners, serving or retired, I wish all a Happy Artillery Day, 26 May.

We celebrate Artillery Day because:

Artillery Day is the 26th of May each year. On that day in 1716, King George I issued a Royal Warrant forming the first regular artillery force in Britain. The Royal Regiment of Artillery (RA) therefore acknowledges May 26 as their birthday.

In 1952, the then Col Comdt, MGen H.O.N. Brownfield, sought and received permission to adopt the Royal Artillery birthdate as Artillery Day for The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery
