Hello Everyone,

I am looking for further information on my Great Grandfather who was killed in action whilst serving with the RGA and I am hoping that someone may be able to help me... I have managed to find out the following information:

Medal Card Information:

Name: Thomas Michael Dudley

Corps: RGA

Rank: GNR

Reg No: SR/5452

280452

Victory Medal: RGA/236B PAGE: 13679

British Medal: as above

15 Star: RGA/3B/4 Page: 977

Theatre of War First served in: Looks like 11 but not sure

Date of entry: 01/05/15

Remarks: Killed in Action

CWGC web site:

Gives the following additional information:

Unit text: 22nd Anti-Aircraft Section

Cemetery: Royal Irish Rifles Graveyard, Laventie

I have also found that he enlisted on 8th December 1914 at Wood Green, Middlesex. He served with the Expeditionary Force in France and Flanders from 6th to 31st May, on which latter date he was killed in action

I have found some information on the 22nd anti aircraft on the Long Long Road Web site but nothing that guides me any further...

I would like to know which battle he was killed in? Will there be any war diaries from his time in France?

If anyone can help me to find out any further information it would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance for looking at my message and your time.

Rhonda.

To see if there's a war diary, you'd need to search the National Archives online catalogue. Must tell you however, that few Royal Garrison Artillery ones survive. And those that do, tend to have brief, and mainly technical, daily entries.
