what constituted trench stores

Hi,

I wondered if someone could tell me what items were considered to be trench stores, I assume that these may well have varied a bit from theatre to theatre (& even seasonally as well?) but my question really relates to France & Flanders.

Any help would be welcome....................

thanks

SAA, grenades, shovels, picks, wire signal and barbed and that sort of thing.

I am sure somebody will be able to provide a more definitive list.

Sniping jedi Hesketh Pritchard complained that telescopic sights were issued as trench stores - so I reckon just about anything that a trench soldier might have a use for.

Weren't Brodies considered trench stores when they were first issued?

Thanks for the info,

the link is very interesting.

I am sure you are right about the Brodies too, seeing it written down jogged my memory that I had come across this before. As for telescopic sights being regarded as a trench store item I assume the accompanying rifle + sight bracket must have been on the list too....................

best regards

Rod
