One of the men whom I am researching, according to his surviving papers, served in Salonika from January 1916 until March 1919. There are two sets of initials associated with his unit there: BHTD and YMAC.

Has anyone any ideas as to what the initials might stand for?

Thanks,

Dave Swarbrick

Hello Dave

BHTD is the Base Horse Transport Depot, an ASC unit.

Can't help you with YMAC, I'm afraid, unless he was discharged on health grounds and then took a job with the YMCA, which ran refreshment huts and the like for the troops.
