Honourable Artillery Company
Raven Armoury has had a long association with HAC, the Honourable Artillery Company.
The Honourable Artillery Company was established and incorporated with a grant of a Royal Charter by Henry VIII on 25 August 1537 “for the better defence of this realm.” From the 17th century the Company has been described as a regiment and remains so to this day. It is the oldest regiment in the British Army and, alongside the five Foot Guards regiments, one of few never to have been amalgamated with another.
Our work with the Honourable Artillery Company started in 2018. Our pikes were used by the Company of Pikemen and Musketeers at the Proclamation of King Charles III in the City of London on 10 September 2022.
