Waterloo Day

Original Title: Wood's Company, Royal Artillery
Present Title: 16 (Sandham's Company) Battery, Royal Artillery
Status: 26 Regt
Date: 1 August 1779
As the result of a Royal Warrant signed on the 30th June 1779, the Battery was raised at Woolwich on 1st August 1779 as Captain J. Wood's Company, 3rd Battalion Royal Artillery. After tours of duty in the U.K., the Battery embarked for Gibraltar in 1785. Between 1793 and 1799 the Battery took part in operations in the West Indies, being involved in St. Lucia, Grenada and in the capture of Trinidad, Surinam and the Virgin Islands. After taking part in the siege of Copenhagen in 1807, and the ill-fated expedition against Walcheren in 1809, the Company became part of the forces of the Duke of Wellington. They were equipped with 9 pounder s. On 16 June 1815, Sandham's Company arrived at Quatre Bras after a gruelling 15-hour march covering the withdrawal of the British and Belgian troops. On the morning of 18th June 1815 the Company was posted between La Haye Sainte and Hougomont in support of the 1st Division, under Maj Gen Cooke. The Company is credited with firing the first shot from the Allied Artillery, and expended over 1,100 rounds during the day. They returned to Woolwich after the Congress of Vienna and were placed in suspended animation on 31st January 1819.
