Recommended Posts

docchippy

A query I am sure some erudite member will be able to help me with. I am aware infantry rgts kept war diaries for each batt etc. However how did the RFA record events? I am especially interested in the Divisional Ammunition Columns. 30th division to be precise. Any help?

:)

Neil,

Yes they did. Try a search on-line at the PROs website. The series you want is WO 95.

Neil,

The file you want is WO 95/2321 which covers Sept 1915 - Dec 1918.

Fantastic help. All I need now is a week's paid leave and time in PRO/ National Archives or what ever it currently calls self.

Ian

a query how I might go about getting info from these diaries. Can researchers be engaged or staff at pro to photocopy diaries? Am interested at the moment in the actions of 30th Div ammunition column RFA 21 march 1918- 1 april 1918. would these be lots of pages to photocopy or a swift exercise for a paid researcher?

You can make a request to the PRO or ask someone in the PRO section of the forum.
