ddycher Posted 16 February , 2018 Share Posted 16 February , 2018 All Anyone have any ideas on how to track subsequent MO’s for a unit on active service ? When changing theatres did the MO go with the unit or was a new one assigned on arrival in theatre ? in my case an MO named Chapman was the first appointed to the 5th Devon’s on their arrival in Egypt in April 1917. Their pre-war MO’s do not appear to have embarked with them for India. Been through the war diaries upto Division level and can’t find any detail. Working my way through Chapman RAMC MIC’s didn’t help either. I don’t know how long he was with the Bn but he does not seem to have gone with them to France. In France I have odd ref’s to differing MO’s none of who seem to have remained with the Bn very long. Any my ideas on how to dig out more detail ? regards Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
