                                 14 Regiment Royal Artillery sits within Royal Artillery Barracks, Larkhill Garrison, which is the home for the
following Royal Artillery units: 14 Regt RA, 19 Regt RA, 26 Regt RA, 32 Regt RA, 47 Regt RA, 1 RHA; and The Royal School of Artillery (RSA). The Regiment’s primary role is delivering physical development support to the Initial Trade Training (ITT) pipeline, for soldiers and RA Young Officers courses. Secondary roles include physical development support to RSA and the wider Garrison community.
Another busy year for 14 Regt RA, ensuring that we continued to deliver Land Warfare Centre outputs, ensuring both soldiers and officers in RA ITT have successfully transited through 14 Regt RA, and onto their respective Field Army Units. The Larkhill Garrison site is a vast one and we are always looking to secure more physical development opportunities, this enabled us to secure a Soldier Performance Facility. The installation of the facility increased the operational output regarding physical development delivery for all Larkhill Garrison based units.
