The Ordnance Society

Ordnance & Artillery of All Periods

About Us

Welcome to the NEW ORDNANCE SOCIETY web-site

The Ordnance Society was formed in June 1986 to promote, encourage and co-ordinate the study of all aspects of the history of ordnance and artillery. It is today, an international society with members from more than 20 countries and all walks of life.

Its primary aim is to provide a means of communication for individuals and organisations interested in any aspect of ordnance and artillery of all periods and to enable publication of their interests and researches.

The Society organises events and produces publications to further these aims:

The annual Journal of the Ordnance Society, produced to a high standard, includes well-illustrated articles and plans of historic cannons and their carriages, artillery, ammunition and explosives.

The quarterly Newsletter includes short articles, information, illustrations, queries and their replies, and news.
Regular ‘Members Day’ events when individual members have the opportunity to present or display their research, interests or collections. These are often held jointly with various museums and ordnance related organisations.
Visits to various military establishments, museums and other places of interest.

We are celebrating the launch of our new web-site with special offers for new members of the Society – your welcome pack will include the DVD “Historic Artillery 2009” and a £10 voucher from DP & G Publications. The DVD is a compilation of 10,000 photographs of cannon and artillery in museums and in private collections in the USA and Canada; and the voucher is redeemable against the DP & G Technical Publications.

  7. Thanks for the observation Dave; we’ve left the ‘old’ web-site as many people will still have links to it, but it does refer to the ‘new’ web-site right at the top of the first page. Regards, Trevor
