British Army: King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery (KTRHA)

in Regent's Park, London

The KTRHA form Her Majesty The Queen's ceremonial Saluting Battery and are stationed at Woolwich, London. Known as 'The Troop' they are a mounted unit and all of their soldiers are superb equestrians trained to drive a team of six horses that pull the First World War 'thirteen pounder' state saluting guns.

The KTRHA are an integral part of the Household Troops. Their duties include the firing of Royal Salutes in Hyde Park on both Royal Anniversaries and State Occasions, and providing a gun carriage and team of black horses for State and military funerals. The Troop performs the duties of the Queen's Life Guard at Horse Guards for one month each year.
