UBIQUE

UBIQUE QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT€¯
(EVERYWHERE WHITHER RIGHT AND GLORY LEAD)

In 1833, the Gunners were granted two mottos, "UBIQUE" and "QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT". It was stated that "UBIQUE" (Everywhere) was also to be  granted as a Battle Honour and was to substitute for "all other terms of distinction for the whole Regiment". This was the end of all other Battle Honours in the Royal Artillery.

A committee was assembled in 1882, under Major General Sir Archibald Allison, to review all the past history of the British Army and to regularise the holding and the granting of Battle Honours, less the  Royal Artillery who had already been given the single Battle Honour  UBIQUE.

The Honour is unique to the Gunners. It simply means that wherever there is a battle the Gunners are there, serving and supporting.

Note: The Engineers also have the Motto UBIQUE.
