kildaremark Posted 10 November , 2013 Share Posted 10 November , 2013 The War Diary for the battery I'm interested states that the battery (103 Siege Battery, RGA) was inspected by King George V at Southampton docks on 29 May 1916 before departure for France. Now that seems to me like the kind of occasion that would not go unphotographed. Was this type of inspection relatively common, and assuming photographs were taken although, not printed in the press (because of the secrecy of the build-up for the Somme offensive), would the Royal archive have kept a record or any other institution?
