Remembered Today:

"D" Battery ,108th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery


Recommended Posts


I am doing research on another member of the Carmichael Family who's name is 2nd Lt. Archibald Carmichael (Lt. George Gordon Carmichael's brother). He was at first a member of the Lothian and Border Horse Yeomanry and was later transferred to the 108th RFA as a 2nd Lt in 1918. He did training back in England in 1917 for what i guessed was so he could become a officer. Does anybody have information on him or the 108th RFA?



PS: He died of his wounds on the 22/5/1918 and is in Vignacourt Cemetery.(i think he was injured whilst being the Observation officer on the same day)

The War Diaries of 108 Brigade are in TNA, Kew under WO 95/2197 for 01/09/1915 to 31/12/1916 and in WO 95/456 for the remainder of the war when it served under 4th Army Control. Hope this helps.
