In the Absent Voters List, my guy is listed as "34018 Cpl., 1 Sec., 64th H., D.A.C., R.F.A."

What does the middle section of that description mean?

Can anyone enlighten me?

many thanks.

Hussey,

Welcome to the Forum. D.A.C. means Divisional Ammunition Column. I'm not certain what the 'H' after 64th means, but someone will know.

Regards,

Thanks Alf mcm for that info. After the entry, there is added in ink, H.D.L. Have you any idea what that means?

thanks

Hi,

In this context "34018 Cpl., 1 Sec., 64th H., D.A.C., R.F.A" may mean "34018 Corporal, Number 1 Section, 64th Heavy/Howitzer Brigade, Divisional Ammunition Column, Royal Field Artillery".

That would fit except Heavy/Howitzer Brigade would mean Royal Garrison Artillery rather than Royal Field Artillery.

as the 64th was a 'Highland' Division I think this is just indicating that he was 34018 Corporal, Number 1 Section, 64th Division Ammunition Column, ... H refers to 'Highland'?

I would suggest it is easier to look at his records which are available. Home service with 64 (H) DAC.
