330th Siege Bttn.

Do I have this correct?... 330th Siege Battalion is part of the 66th (2nd) East Lancashire Division, and is the Divisional Artillery?

330th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery was part of 66th Division, but 330th Siege Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery was a different unit.

I hate to be a pest, but how do I find the 330th Siege Battalion RGA? I'd LOVE to find the war diary at best, but even a history of them would help....

The only war diary under 330 Siege Battery is WO 95/545.

I'm no RGA expert and it may have amalgamated into a higher formation etc.

A guaranteed 3 figure sum.

They are in the process of digitising it at the moment, so I would imagine that it will be released some time next year.

There is a thread somewhere on the Forum about release dates.

Have an interest in the 330th SB myself. The original diary will be 'unavailable in the reading rooms 22 October 2014 – 02 January 2015'. So I guess that gives a digitised release date.

Well, that is great information, I am hoping I can access a copy of the digitised release and order a copy to print myself, that would be great......I guess I will have to stay tuned as they say....


I sincerely hope that with luck some kind soul out there might be generous enough to keep me posted , if by chance I miss it.....
