Honourable Artillery Company - On this day 100 years ago: 1915
The 1st Battalion replaced the Wiltshires in a difficult salient called Hooge, 4 kilometres east of Ypres, on 8th June 1915...Bullets came in from all directions and the HAC expected heavy casualties, but were lucky: in three days they lost only one killed and 15 wounded.

Welcome to the Honourable Artillery Company
Welcome to the Honourable Artillery Company, a charity incorporated in 1537.
We have over 2,500 members, many of whom are active in the oldest regiment in the British Army, the Army Regiment that bears our name, or in the Special Constabulary of the City of London Police. Others, having completed their service to Crown and country, belong to our veteran Company, enjoying membership not only of the Company but its many clubs and societies as well as its two ceremonial sub-units, the Pikemen & Musketeers and the Light Cavalry.
Our London home, comprising Armoury House and the Artillery Garden, is a unique and vibrant place and offers an unparalleled venue for corporate, private and sporting events as well as being a place for HAC members to meet, eat and relax.
This is a modern, relevant charity, but one with ancient roots at the heart of the City of London.
