shutt Posted 3 November , 2013 Share Posted 3 November , 2013 My Gt Uncle served with the 179th Brigade RFA and later the 180th Brigade RFA until May 1918 when he was killed. Prior to the 179th, I believe he joined up with the 257th 1/1 or 325th 2/1 Brigade (Lowland) between May 11th and June 3rd 1916 at Redford Barracks, Edinburgh, having the Regimental ? number 18554, then given a service number 651943 which thanks to other members help in the past I understand indicates these units. I also have a letter from one of his comrades after his death, written to his sister and with reference to a photograph take when they were at Redford Barracks, which seems to fit in. What is puzzling me is that in the "Soldiers Died", he is listed as RHA & RFA. Were either of these Brigades at Redford RHA rather than RFA ?. It`s been puzzling me a bit, so any help to solve this confusion would really be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
