Welcome.

If you go to Long Long Trail, top left of this page and put London Regiment in the search box you should get info on every battalion of this all TF Regiment.

Hello, Paul, and welcome.

Straight answer is no - there were London regiment battalions in (I think), the 54th Division in the Middle East; there were also the 58th (2nd/1st) and 60th (2nd/2nd) London Divisions, containing second-line battalions.

Then, to complete the joy, several battalions were brought back from palestine (where the 60th Division ended up) to France in 1918 and joined (if I remember correctly) the 31st Division.

Check the Long, Long Trail (top left hand corner of welcome page)
