Hi forum

I've come across some records on the Silver War Badge roll where the soldier's regiment is listed as I.C.L.C or E.C.L.C and N.C.L.C

Could anyone tell me what this means?

Many thanks

E.C.L.C. = Eastern Command Labour Corps & N.C.L.C. = Northern Command Labour Corps and so on - often referring to the Command Depots of Labour Corps personnel.

I recall a member here, Ivor Lee, who had knowledge of Labour Corps and was helpful with queries. Not seen his posts of late but you might like to see if you can PM him re-the Command Labour Centres.

ECLC was at Thetford, moving to Sutton in January 1918

NCLC at Stensall Camp, Yorks, moving to Ripon in January 1918.

Ivor Lee co-authored a book with John Starling called "No Labour, No Battle" from which I sourced the above.

Just a minor point but E.C.L.C. = Eastern Command Labour Centre (not Corps), N.C.L.C. = Northern Command Labour Centre and I.C.L.C. = Irish Command Labour Centre.
