HORSE ARTILLERY - WORLD WAR 1
RHA was responsible for light, mobile guns that provided firepower
in support of the cavalry. It is the senior arm of the artillery.
In 1914 the establishment was one battery to each Brigade of Cavalry.
A battery had six 13-pounder field guns, and included 5 officers
and 200 men. The battery had in addition 228 horses. The original
BEF included only one Division of Cavalry, of 4 Brigades, and thus
it had four batteries RHA, which were organised into two Brigades.
