Does anyone out there have access to the orbits that hold the information on staff command of 27th division and also for VII Corps?

I would be grateful for copies or the information to these two units. I am trying to establish who and when were T D O Snow's principles staff officers and the like.

Many thanks in advance.

Broomers,

Absolutely great just what I was after. As with my other request for 27th div GSO1, its to follow up on Snow's performance under different BGGS's and to do that I needed the dates they were in the seat. I had been under the assumption that the 'better Burnett-Stuart was in command for all the main battles of 1917, replacing Lyon, who had been in for Gommecourt!

Thanks again

Arm
