Does anyone know the details of the following RE units? 392 Road Construction Company, where and what were they doing beginning February 1917 and 208 Field Company throughout the war.

Many thanks Roop. Any ideas where to go now with 392 Coy? Another one of our village sons was killed serving with this unit but not much else is known.

Lion Boxer,

Try the RE Museum at Chatham, I found them very helpful indeed, whilst I was researching the 128 Fd Coy.

Lion Boxer,

I concur trying the Chatham RE Museum ... I was able to purchase my copy of the Corps History (Western front) through their referral to a book seller, as well as a cap badge replica through their gift shop. B)

The Corps history lists the Road Construction Coy still in service at the Armistice as: #301-319, #330-347, and #349 ... all in the Western Front theater. [#320-29 were Quarrying Coy, also Western Front.] None of the transportation support (rail, road or inland waterway / dock) units appear to be numbered above #349 by war's end.
