The records maintained at the Firepower Museum, Woolwich, London contain data, photographs and film of the Royal Artillery's history until 1990.
To bring the records up to date, the U.K.’s twenty two R.A. regiments have been asked to contribute a small sum of money to enable the R.A. Historical Trust to set up imaginatively designed technological displays depicting the ever changing face of Britain’s Gunners.
