Royal Artillery Field Regiments
The British Infantry Division boasted three Field Regiments, with a total of seventy two 25 Pounder Field Guns, which gave them the greatest quantity of fire-power available to Divisional Commanders in the Second World War. Emphasis was heavily laid upon the Gunners to lay down devastating, heavy bombardments onto enemy positions and use a mixture of barrage and fire mission techniques to reduce infantry casualties. Bombardments from even a single Field Regiment were impressive, captured veterans of the Eastern Front could not comprehend the sheer quantity of artillery fire they came under and told British interrogators that the British must have "belt fed" artillery.
placed great emphasis on the supportive fire from Field Regiments, in both offence and defence which helped offset infantry casualties.
