Remembered Today:

Horse Transport Coy ASC Diary


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this is in the right section, hopefully it will be moved if not.

A while a go I bought a small, fading, pencil-written GW Diary. After some research I found out that he was in a Horse Transport Coy in the ASC (that is reflected in the diary).

However, the diary is from 1919 - but, it gives an insight into a little know area of Great War History.

The best entry is the last one

Thurs 22 May 1919

Notified for Embarkation tomorrow Free

Another good entry

Mon 17 March 1919

12 Killed [,] 24 Wounded [,] Number [of] prisoners taken

Will try to transcribe more if interested.

Zeb 12,

I, for one, would be interested in reading more transcriptions. The 17 March 1919 entry has me puzzled. Wasn't the war over?

All the best,

Presumably the embarkation was from France, back to the UK.

Good point Old Tom.

1152 and 1153 Cos RASC both served in Russia in 1919. 1152's War Diary begins in March and 1153's in May. There were also a few Depot Units of Supply, which are very small units.
