British Corps of Artillery Drivers, The Battle of Chippawa, 5th July 1814
At the start of the Napoleonic period the foot artillery still hired civilian drivers. This proved unsatisfactory and in 1806 the “Corps of Royal Artillery Drivers” was established.
They became known by their knickname the “Wee Gee Corps.
This was a separate corps to the rest of the foot artillery, and it was only the horse artillery that had their own drivers.
