XXXII Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery

This was a unit of Britain’s pre-war regular army. It is also sometimes shown as 32 Brigade RFA.


  • This brigade was originally comprised of numbers 27, 134 and 135 Batteries RFA. It was under command of 4th Division and went to France with it in late August 1914.
    • By June 1916 a fourth battery, ‘D’, had joined. It was made up a section that joined from 86 (Howitzer) Battery and another from 128 (Howitzer) Battery. Both had been in 127 Brigade, also in 4th Division.
    • On 14 January 1917 ‘D’ Battery was broken up and the two sections returned to 86 and 128 Batteries. ‘D’ Battery was replaced in 32 Brigade by 86 (Howtizer) Battery which was moved in from 127 Brigade.
