I wish I could lay claim to this but I borrowed it off Andrew Chaplin, who originally posted it at Break out your party hats!

Today, 26 May, is the 286th anniversary of the entry of the Royal Regiment of Artillery onto the Order of Battle as a permanent member in 1716. Prior to that it was raised for each campaign and then disbanded. It was likely George I with his knowledge of the armies on the Continent who brought this about.
