Three honour rolls commemorate those who served in the 18th Battery during World War One.  

The detailed rolls were printed in the United Kingdom for the 18th Brigade to provide a record of service for each year the brigade fought in World War One. The rolls contain the names of those who served in the brigade under their titles as well as details of campaigns, military awards, details of killed and wounded (including horses) and shells fired. 

The fourth year record of service also includes statistical totals for 1915 to 1919.  The second year's record of Active Service details the period from October 18 1916 to October 17 1918, while the third year's record of Active Service details the period from October 18 1917 to October 17 1918.
