AVC in Italy

Recommended Posts

In my research I have discovered that No 1 Mobile Veterinary Section attd. 1st Cavalry Division moved from la Chapelle-aux-Pots to somewhere in Italy in November 1917.

I have been on ancestory looking at the war Diaries but unfortunately I can't decifer the handwriting. (Who would have thought a veterinary officer could write as bad as a doctor).

Would anyone be able to help me with any locations of either No 1 MVS or 1st Cav. Div. As well as any significant events that may have happened as I feel I have hit a 'brick wall' so to speak

The Long, Long Trail says that No 1 Base Veterinary Hospital moved from La Chapelle-aux-Potts to Italy in November 1917. Coincidence or confusion?

I too am researching 1st Cavalry Div, 1MVS, actually my grandfather who moved to Italy in October 1917 to join the 8/9 service batallion, York and Lancasters. He arrived in Mantua on 16/11/17 and eventually onto the Asiago plateau in January 1918. He was on San Sisto ridge during the Asiago offensive by enemy troops, captured and reported missing 2/8/18 as POW, eventually being released late November and repatriated in Southhampton on 30/11/18.
