The Royal Army is headquartered at Boston Common Barracks, on the site of the former park, on the West side of old Boston. It is bordered to the north by Battery Street, to the south by Common Street – also known as The Mall – and to the south by Frog Lane. The area began its transformation into the current complex of barracks, staff buildings, batteries and armories in the troubled times immediately after the Gomorrah Event, when a major contingent of troops and militiamen were encamped upon the Common. Subsequently, earthen walls were replaced by stone ones and the Barracks became one of the main features of the growing city.

At any given time up to 3,000 troops are garrisoned at the Barracks, meaning its walls contain one in 15 of the city’s population. Outside its walls, many senior officers maintain townhouses or take rooms at city clubs and hostelries, while outwith the city itself the surrounding towns are home to even more troops in their regimental barracks – and of course there’s the famous Castle Island in the bay, home to the Royal Rangers.

The Barracks contains a building for the use of the General Staff, but also headquarters buildings for the five main branches of the army: Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, Engineers and Quartermasters.
