The Historical story, so far of the Royal Artillery

Hyde Park

RA Memorial Hyde Park

Commemorating the 49,076 RA personnel who died in WWI, and the further 29,924 in WWII.

It was erected in 1925, designed by Charles Sargeant Jagger, the memorial offers an uncomprimising and unsentimental depiction of the reality of life and deat on the battlefield.

It was ahead of its time and has been described as 'at least as great a sculpture as Picasso's Guernica is a great painting'.

Every year the Royal Artillery conducts its rememberance service at its Hyde Park memorial.
