Hi everyone,

I recently came across my great grandfathers service record on the web. I thought I would never find out about what he did in WW1 as all I had to go by was a picture of him in uniform that didn't show any insignia. Also his name was Daniel Brown so fairly common surname.

However I managed to get a service record by using his address on Ancestry.co.uk however I can't make sense of the record at all. I was wondering if someone could help.

The corp is given as: 3/2 Lowd. f.a. Bd No. 801

If there is anyone that can help I have a copy of the service record I could email.

Kind regards

Iain Brown

Hi Iain,

Did it have a service number on the record ?

Hi Grant, service number was the 801 number I think. Found a medal card for Daniel Brown with that number but it doesn't give any information. He had 2 service numbers on the card though. 801 and 686595 both for r.f.a.

Hi Iain,

Yep their his numbers 801 and 696585 whith the RFA where he was a Gunner,

If you hang around till the sun comes up, some one with a lot more knowledge about numbers and the RFA should bumble along and give you an answer

Sorry not to be more help
