Untitled[edit]

The King's Troop RHA are based at St John's Wood barracks, not Regent's Park barracks as stated in the article. A quick look at the Troop website would have clarified this.

Order of precedence[edit]

It is not quite right to say that the King's Troop are 1st in the order of precedence over every other British unit when they parade with their guns. The HAC parading with guns would take precedence. See Honourable Artillery Company in Wikipedia.

Precedence is accorded to the RHA, not merely King's Troop. If HAC ever supplanted or shared that precedence (and I can't find proof), then such arrangement must have ceased if the statement here is correct: In 2005 the guns were withdrawn from Gun Troop and the Troop was renamed Liaison Troop (L Tp) with the role of providing liaison officer parties. The majority of L Tp deployed to Iraq over winter 2006/7. The ceremonial Light Guns were retained by the Regiment to fire salutes at the Tower of London. Bjenks (talk) 04:30, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Pics needed[edit]

The image of the mounted sentry, while a good idea, is not up to the quality we need for the article. It would be better to have a good parade photo and/or gunnery action shot, e.g., taken at a salute. Surely someone has one. Cheers, Bjenks (talk) 03:39, 18 June 2012 (UTC) Otherwise, I would favour
