Did Divisional Trains include ASC and RFA Ammunition Columns?

Recommended Posts

I’m a little confused, my Granddad Harry Joseph Underhill, (Service No. 139083 pictured sitting front left of picture) served with the Royal Field Artillery but in his Medical discharge papers from No.3 Convalescent Hospital in Salonika (29th June 1917) he seems to have been transferred to the 518th Company of the 60thDivisional Train, which according to the Long, Long Trail website was ASC rather than RFA.

Could anyone help with this and tell me if Ammunition Columns were RFA, ASC comprised of both or if they both formed part of the 518th please?

 

Many Thanks

Hej Steve

As I understand it, Ammunition Columns were RFA and Divisional Trains were ASC.

Your man could have been attached to 60th Divl. Train, therefore still being RFA, although serving with an ASC unit.

His Medal Index Card does not give any indication that he was transferred to the ASC (if he had been, he would have been given a new ASC Regtl.No.).
