36th MT Coy ASC

Recommended Posts

Garry David Wills

Hello

 

I am researching Pte Sidney Hack, who was KIA 20/10/1918. He served in the ASC and the CWGC website records his unit as the 36th MT Coy. I can't find this unit on the LongLongTrail website or elsewhere on the internet. Can anyone help with this unit and specifically its activities in October 1918 

 

Thanks

Garry

Welcome to the Forum, Garry.

 

Have you tried Googling "36 MT Coy ASC"? This leads to

 
this page

 

of the British Badge Forum, where Fatboy Ken says he's writing a history of the company.

Thanks so much for this - I did google it but obviously not as effectively as you! Thanks very much.

I wonder if the history has been completed? If so, I would love to read it.

 

All the best,

Welcome to the Forum, Garry.

 

36 Company ASC was a Horse Transport Company. I suspect that what is meant is 36th Divisional MT Company ASC, formerly 36th Divisional Supply Column. Its War Diary is here:

 

WO 95/666 36 Divisional Supply Column (379 Company A.S.C.) 1916 Nov. - 1919 July  

 

It should be downloadable from the Kew website but is not yet available on Ancestry.

Which makes things a little confusing.

 

No doubt someone more adept than I could determine which of the two companies was in the Harlebeke area in October 1918 (assuming that soldiers were buried near to where they died).

 

Is there a clue in Hack's number: M2/105279 ? (Edit: see this relevant thread.)

 

Is it possible to contact Fatboy Ken via the BBF?

His M2- prefix would point to a motorised rather than horse drawn coy.
