Meaning Edit

Ubique ("everywhere" in Latin) is the motto of the Royal Artillery[2] and the Royal Engineers.[3] It was given to them by King William IV in 1832 and in 1833 it was further granted as a battle honour to the Royal Artillery in place of all former and later battle honours they could receive.
