Royal Regiment of Artillery
On 26 May 1716 the first two permanent companies of Royal Artillery were formed by royal warrant in the reign of George the 1st. The two companies numbered 100 men each.
The warrant was signed on this site then known as Tower Place. The erection of the current building was begun in 1719. The Royal Military Academy was located here from 1741 until 1806.

SE18, Artillery Square, Academy Performing Arts

Sometime 2011-17 the rather nice yellow plaque was replaced with the bronze rectangle which doesn't look new nor designed for an exterior site.

We don't consider the red plaque below the central window a memorial but, for the record, it reads "Royal Military Academy Grade II listed building, RARE, Royal Arsenal Riverside Explore".
