Remembered Today:

Captain Herbert Lewis R.F.A


Recommended Posts

Herbert Lewis was a Captain in the Royal Field Artillery’s 1st North Midland Ammunition Column who died on 17th April 1917 aged 36. He is buried in St Nicolas Churchyard, Great Coates but cannot find any details other than those on the CWGC website.

Any help would be very much appreciated

I am not quite sure what you are after - but I note that in the May 1915 Army List a Captain H Lewis was listed with 1st Lincolnshire Battery, 1st N Midland Bde. (a captain since 1 July 1912). A number 2 before his name probably indicates he was at the time with 2nd/1st Lincs Bty, I would guess..they were a Boston based Bty, 2nd Lincs Bty being Grimsby based. Not listed in the 'Cross of Sacrifice' volume and I don't see any medal cards so maybe have served at home in the 2nd Line - they were with 2nd N Midland/59th Div who were in Ireland in 1916 and went to France only in Feb 1917.. whether the Ammunition Column existed by that time I am unclear BACs had generally been removed to DACs in 1916 - although maybe not in 2nd Line units), the brigade being 295th Brigade, I think ..
