    The formation of “A” and “B” Batteries as garrison artillery and schools of gunnery in Kingston and Quebec City in 1871 marked a watershed in Canadian military history. The first full-time or regular elements of the post-Confederation Canadian army, they continue to serve proudly as sub-units of 1st Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery – part of the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.
