Remembered Today:

A Company Heavy Section MGC - tanks and crew deployment


Recommended Posts

Grateful for help, once again, regarding the First Tank Crews - in this case A Company


I am trying to find a definitive date for the deployment of the crews and their tanks from England to France, then there avaiable date on the Somme .


Most sources for the arrival of the crews state 14 September, but I have found a record (based on a contemporary diary of despatch rider Cpl FS Cutting) which states that deployed on the 11 September.. He says he travelled via Rouen , arriving at Conteville at 2200 hrs on the 14th but was sent to Happy Valley (close to the Loop) and was in action; he then returned to Yvrench. He also states he was at Acheux by 20 September
