Woolwich Arsenal

Hi all,

Just wondered if any could shed any light on some information I have found on the 1891 census. My ancestor ( William Joseph Buck Curtis ) was living at the military academy at Woolwich arsenal and was a gunner with the royal artilery. I have two questions really :-

1. On the census in the column for employer it has an S in there does anyone know what this S stands for ? ( a few people have this )

2. How do I found out more about his life as a gunner, is there somewhere the records are held ??

Hope someone can help, thank you for any help you can give.
