Hi

could someone please give me some idea as where to start looking for the lists of artillery units that were in n/russia 1919?

thanks for any help.

I'm trying to research my grandfather.He was enrolled in Glamorganshire.

The Long, Long Trail - the link is at the top of every page of the GWF - is always a useful starting point. I know that some were sent from what had been the British Salonika Force but I don't know whether all were from that source. The RFA Brigade my Grandfather joined briefly at the end of 1918 before he was demobbed did go our there, for example.

If you have any further information about your Grandfather please post them in the thread. His name and date of birth would be a good start but his service number (on the rim of his medals if you have them) would be best of all. You will be surprised at what the Forum pals can tell you from the smallest hint.

Thanks for the speedy response.

sadly the medals are long gone...owing to the fact that my brother and I got hold of them as kids and lost them.
