What is 54 BAC RFA?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm researching a man who was posted to 54 BAC RFA in Salonica as the BQMS in late 1916 and was there until early 1919 but I have no idea what that unit was.

 

I know he was a brass moulder in civilian life and was also sent on attachment to work at a munitions factory in Newcastle for a few months so I'm guessing it may be Base Ammunition Company but I know the artillery don't have companies.

 

Can anyone help with this unit?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Michael

BAC = Brigade Ammunition Column according to my source

That's great, thanks very much.

 

Would they have been a static unit? It sounds quite mobile to me.

Thanks a lot David, once again a fantastic help.

 

I spotted the Wikipedia entry after asking the question which tells me enough to understand it's roll.

 

I hadn't thought to look on LLT so that is a great help, thank you.
