PART II. TRAINING IN THE VARIOUS BRANCHES OF THE SERVICE

Royal Horse Artillery, Woolwich (Old Style)

The "Right of the Line, and the Pride of the British Army" is the title by which this Corps is known amongst soldiers.

Instruction in the theory of gunnery is followed by practical lessons in the mechanism and working of the guns.

The guns are then horsed or "hooked in"; the battery of eight guns, is galloped off to the ranges, and practice under working conditions is carried on— the battery coming into action as on a battlefield.

After a drill, the men are to be seen watering their horses, which are their first care on all occasions.

ROYAL HORSE ARTILLERY at WOOLWICH

Recruits at Gun Drill

DURING the preliminary drills the men are instructed in the use of the guns without horses or ammunition, and are taught to unlimber, load and sight quickly, and to go through the movements of firing, all of which are vividly shown in this film.

Watering Horses and Hooking-In the Gun

HERE the care with which our military horses are treated is shown, as the men lead them up to the water troughs. They then drive them to a gun which is ready to go into action, and with great speed hook in the horses to the gun carriage and drive it rapidly towards the spectator..
