12 August 1805
A detachment of the Royal artillery, consisting of about eighty men, which are changed at stated periods, have an encampment near Reculver.  This has been formed for the double purpose of contributing to the health of the men, and to give them an opportunity of practising with shot and shells on the sea shore.
