Family History

fiona-bruce-at-firepower-1_sml1We know that over 2 million men and women have served in the Royal Artillery since its formation in the early 18th Century, so literally millions of people in Britain and around the world are descended from Gunners. In 2009 the Museum launched its family history booklet entitled Is There a Gunner in Your Family Tree?

Firepower has been featured several times on BBC TV’s Who Do You Think You Are – here is Fiona Bruce when she came to find out more about her great-grandfather’s Royal Artillery service in the First World War.

If you know you have a Gunner in your family tree then the Museum may be able to help advise you in your research.
