Established in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars, this regiment was formed on May 2nd, 1800, as a response to the looming threat of invasion. The Napoleonic Wars had shown that the British Isles were not impervious to attack, and coastal defences needed reinforcement to safeguard against potential adversaries. THE ROLE OF GARRISON POINT FORT Garrison Point Fort, where the Limerick City Artillery was stationed for many years, held a strategic position within the intricate network of fortifications along the Thames estuary. Constructed during the late 18th century, the fort was designed to defend against enemy ships attempting to navigate the treacherous waters leading to London. Its location at Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey allowed it to control access to the River Medway, an important waterway for the British Navy. The Limericks were tasked with operating the artillery batteries at Garrison Point Fort. Their primary mission was to deter and, if necessary, engage hostile forces that might attempt to breach the defenses of the Thames estuary. The soldiers of the Limerick City Artillery were trained to handle various types of artillery pieces, including cannons and mortars, which were essential for defending the fort and the vital infrastructure it protected.
