Bombardier was the rank in the Artillery between that of gunner and that of serjeant or sergeant.

In the Royal Artillery, prior to 1920[1] Bombardier was the NCO rank directly below Corporal, with Acting Bombadier the rank below that. After that date a Bombadier is the Artillery equivalent of a Corporal. Acting Bombadier was renamed Lance Bombadier in 1918.
