No.2 Depot RFA was at Glasgow in 1903, Templemore in 1908 and Athlone in 1911. It was at Preston by the time war was declared.

Post #2 in this thread

has 71st Battery at Kilkenny in 1905 which fits in with the Depot being at Templemore.

71st Battery was in 36th Brigade RFA, 2nd Division and stationed at Ewshott when war was declared. It was affiliated to 2B Reserve Brigade RFA at Brighton from August 24, 1914.
