Fires Bulletin Magazine, Field Artillery School, Fort Sill, Oklahoma


If you are interested in the evolution of artillery during WW1 then you should have a look at the archive section of the Fort Sill website.  Fort Sill is the home to the US Army’s Field Artillery Training School and as part of their knowledge gathering and sharing process they publish a journal called the ‘Fires Bulletin’ every two months.  The archives for this magazine, dating back to January 1911, are available for free online and contain a wealth of information on the employment of artillery by the British, French, and Germans during WW1.  Many of the articles covering the British use of artillery are direct reprints from the Journal of the Royal Artillery, written during and immediately post WW1.

The following article titles will illustrate to you some of the material available:

(May-Jun, 1920)
Colonel W. H. F. Weber, C.M.G., D.S.O., R.F.A.
* Reprint from the Journal of the Royal Artillery, November, 1919.


(Sep-Oct, 1922)
Lieutenant-Colonel C. N. F. Broad, D.S.O., R.F.A.
* Reprint from the Journal of the Royal Artillery, May, 1922.


(Jan-Feb, 1923)
Colonel W. H. F. Weber, C.M.G., D.S.O., R.F.A.
