Our History

On May 4, 1793, the Loyal Company was formed in Saint John in response to the threat of attack by French privateers. In 1838 all artillery Batteries around the province were constituted into the New Brunswick Regiment of Artillery. This makes the Regiment the oldest continuous serving artillery unit in Canada.

The Regiment manned local defences during the War of 1812. Gunners volunteered for service during the Aroostook, or 'Pork 'n Beans' war. In 1866, the St. Andrews Battery, under Captain Osborn, was reformed in preparation against a Fenian attack. In June 1866, Captain Pick's Battery manned the guns at Partridge Island to defend Saint John from Fenian attack. The Carleton Martello Tower and Sand Cove beach were also defended.

The Regiment was placed on active service during the Great War 1914-1918. Over 2000 gunners were sent overseas, including the 4th and 6th Siege Batteries, the 2nd Divisional Ammunition Column, and re-enforcement drafts of the 9th Siege Battery. The first Canadian killed during this war was Captain Ernest Jones who died on August 5, 1914 while serving with a British Regiment. Captain Jones had served with the Regiment in the 1890's, as had two brothers, one of whom commanded the Regiment.
