PART II. TRAINING IN THE VARIOUS BRANCHES OF THE SERVICE

Royal Garrison Artillery

The work of the Royal Garrison Artillery in this country is principally confined to coast defence. The chief training ground is at the School of Gunnery, Shoeburyness, where these pictures were taken, and where there is an extensive ground for practice and experiments.

The heavy guns, shown in the act of firing, are 9-in. muzzle-loaders, which, when loaded, are run out to the port-holes. After being fired they are brought into position for re-loading by the recoil.

ARMY SERVICE CORPS

Dismounting a Service Wagon

Even our blue-jackets do not surpass in smartness the men engaged in this operation. The wagons used by the corps are constructed so as to be quickly dismantled for shipment or transit by rail. The scene opens upon six men and a fully equipped wagon. At the word of command they run forward and proceed with great speed to take the entire wagon to pieces, which are laid on the ground ready for packing..
