174th siege battery RGA


Recommended Posts

I have found other posts on this forum regarding the 174th Siege battery, which give details of the various Heavy Artillery Groups to which it was attached. I would like to know where it was serving during the period October 1916 - June 1918. Were the HAG attached to particular Divisions? If so can anyone point me in the right direction to find out which Divisions they were with.

Hi Judithb,

Just a bit further to Paul's notes, over 28th/29th September 1917 174 Siege Battery along with 5 Siege Battery moved into position at Hindenburg Farm (around 3/4 mile SSE of Pilckem) and it remained there at least until the time your chap was attached to HQ 46 Heavy Artillery Group (during this period and until December 1917 174 Siege Battery was part of 46 HAG).

Kind regards
