David26 Posted 17 February , 2018 Share Posted 17 February , 2018 The MIC for a man I am researching (George Henry Colson) says that he started the war in the HQ of "Asquith's Bde" RHA. Looking for that term across Ancestry reveals a small number of other men who appeared to be serving in that unit. The LLT doesn't mention such a brigade and the only other reference to this unit I can find is on the Stockton-On-Tees memorial website which lists a man having served in it in 1904 and gives it another name of "2nd Indian". Was "Asquith's Bde" still a real unit in 1914? Or was it perhaps still being used anachronistically? David. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
